Known in the Office as: The Quizzard of Landscape
Actual Name: Michael Lobo
Which project at K&W do you feel most proud of? Why? The Corps of Cadets Renovation at Texas A&M University is one of my favorite projects. I was a student when construction was underway and got to see the space transform into the campus landmark it is today.
Why landscape architecture? I enjoy the unique combinations of art and science and its role in shaping the future of our cities.
Tell me some passions of yours. I really enjoy working out and trivia…the more random and obscure, the better.
What is your role at K&W? I pretty much work where I am needed. Currently I am working on master planned communities and a couple multi-family projects.
What is your favorite part about working at K&W? My favorite part about K&W are the teams and the work culture that has been established here. It really makes it all worth it.
What’s your favorite outdoor space to design? Courtyards right now but it changes all time.
What advice would you give someone who wants to be in this profession? Get a wireless mouse and head phones. Total game changer.
Which college did you attend? Texas A&M University
Did you play any sports growing up? If so, what? I played football at Katy.
What would a perfect day look like for you? 80 degrees, sunny and not a cell phone in sight.
If a genie gave you a wish, what would you wish for? Unlimited wishes…duh!
What is your favorite meal? Chocolate chip Cookies and Milk. It covers all of the food groups you really need.
Would you rather be the funniest person in the room or the most intelligent? I think the funniest person in the room is often times the most intelligent.
What is your favorite bag of chips to eat? Sun chips with the really noisy bag. Do they still make those?
Candy or popcorn? Candy. Preferably something sour.
Tea or coffee? ¾ Coffee ¼ Milk
