To Cary, good design is all about education. While working as a graphic and architectural designer on projects for BCT Architects, Metropolitan Partnership, Under Armour, Saks Fifth Avenue and others, Cary has maintained a steady stream of experience in education for the past four years.
He has worked with children for DC’s OSSE School Garden Specialist and his affiliates, the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture, and Living Classrooms. Cary has also worked with adults on projects that include designing a community vegetable garden as part of a transitional housing project in North St. Louis and in partnership with the Baltimore Police cadet program at Outward Bound.
In all these experiences, Cary’s educational philosophy is centered self-discovery, self-expression, and mental and physical health. Working simultaneously as a designer has provided a lot of opportunities for him to discover the potential of design for education and the importance of education in design.
