Keegan Oneal
Keegan was born and raised in San Diego, California where close proximity to the ocean, mountains, and desert afforded ample opportunities for exploration and adventure. The natural beauty and dynamic cultural history of the American Southwest captured his imagination from an early age. This led to his curiosity for the ways different societies dwell and modify their environments, particularly in situations of migration and displacement. His interests in design practice lie at the interface between public space, green infrastructure, and social justice.

Keegan graduated with a bachelor’s degree in sociology with a focus on social inequality from UC San Diego. Prompted initially by his interests in agriculture and ecology, he earned a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Oregon. During his time as a graduate student, Keegan was named a University Olmsted Scholar, received a Graduate Honor Award from the Oregon ASLA, and was a recipient of the John Decherd Research Scholarship. Prior to MVVA, he spent several years working for the International Rescue Committee and interned with Spurlock Landscape Architects in San Diego.

Keegan joined MVVA in 2017.
