MYKD has added three talented designers to our team this summer! We’re pleased to welcome Conner Cunningham, Nam Jung Kim, and Jack Beresford (from left to right) to our team.
Conner Cunningham joins MYKD as a Designer. Conner received his Bachelors of Science in landscape architecture, with a minor in architecture from Ohio State University. He brings an artistic sensibility to his interest in issues of ecological and community resiliency. This year, he received an OCASLA Student Merit Award for student work produced during his time at Ohio State. His past experience includes work with Americorps through Franklinton Farms, helping local communities plant and harvest local organic produce in “food desert” neighborhoods. Conner assisted Aimee Moore, a senior lecturer at the Knowlton School, in writing, designing, and organizing a new digital textbook for Arch 2310, in addition to his work with CNC fabrication at OSU, where he was consistently on the Dean’s List and graduated cum laude.
Nam Jung Kim, Designer, brings an interdisciplinary background and global perspective to MYKD. She holds a Masters in Landscape Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and a Bachelors in Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design. Nam Jung has four years of experience working in various firms on architectural, interior and graphic design projects- from concept to construction. She uses the latest technology in the creative design process, and is working closely with our team to use both hand making and the most cutting-edge software to develop innovative solutions for our clients.
Jack Beresford also joins MYKD as a Designer. Jack brings a strong knowledge of horticulture and planting design to our studio, with a focus on resilient and sustainable urban design. He graduated from Northeastern University this past May with a Bachelors in Landscape Architecture and a minor in Business Management from the D’Amore-McKim School of Business. His prior working experience includes numerous landscape architectural firms, as well as with the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) in their Real Estate Development Group. Jack’s design interest is focused on the ways in which new urban strategies can be developed to create healthier, smarter, and more sustainable environments that benefit all users.
