Thanks Michael. I am preparing for the Chicago trip, and I feel I need some time to articulate what I want to accomplish. I am still an entry level (graduated last year), so it takes sometime to be able to contribute more significant way. I am interested in GIS technologies and how it can help design the sites which has challenging topography and hydrology. However,I am also interested in how materials can be put together to make things work. I decided to become a landscape architect, this profession just appeared when I connected everything that has been important to me. My dream is to go back to a sleepy little town where I grew up in Japan and help bring back fireflies by designing a riverside park. Thank you for asking.
