Design and Teaching Philosophies: Our world, including its natural environment and all living things are becoming increasingly interconnected. It is our duty to recognize the effect and influence our actions have on the rest of the world outside our local area. My goal is to create a healthy learning environment where aspiring architects and designers can thrive by incorporating what they already know through their real-world experiences with academic elements taken from my classes in order to enhance their talents and ideas to produce thoughtful, sustainable and innovative designs for the future.

Additional Information: Earlier in his career, Trevor lived in the wilderness of Tennessee for two years as a wilderness counselor and managed four multi-million dollar philanthropic campaigns for the United Way of the Bay Area in San Francisco. He has taken numerous long-term motorcycle journeys throughout Mexico, Central America and the United States in order to undertake academic research and promote his international development organization.

Currently, besides teaching at NSAD, Trevor is the founder of Pangea Proxima, an international non-profit organization, focused on increasing access to education and health, while promoting sustainable building in developing nations. He also founded and is a co-partner of Evolution Maps, a mapping and spatial analysis company, which promotes the work of small to mid-sized businesses, non-profits and local government entities.
