Ryoma was born and raised in Los Angeles, where the lack of green space within the city fabric raised his awareness of the value and role of landscape architecture. Prior to joining MVVA in 2015, he worked as a designer for Raft Landscape in New York City and as a technical designer for SAA Interiors and Architecture in California. He was also a sustainable design intern for UC Davis Design and Construction Management.
Ryoma received a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture from The University of California, Davis, where he graduated with honors and was the recipient of the ASLA Merit Award from the Sierra Chapter. Ryoma is a LEED Accredited Professional in Interior Design and Building Design and Construction.
