A rare native Austinite, Cassie brings a serious passion for plants, details, art and design to the table. She consistently seeks the poetry of place through a thoughtful conceptual approach and finds a balanced dialogue between interior and exterior spaces through drawing exploration, design and detailing.
Since joining the dwg. family in 2013, Cassie has contributed in numerous ways with her intuitive design sensibility and creativity to projects at all scales from start to finish. With a particular affinity for all things plants, Cassie often directs the botanical visions in the studio, pushing for a more biodiverse, native and resilient future through performative landscapes.
Cassie studied Fine Art and received a Bachelor of Interior Architecture from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin in addition to Master Gardener training. In her spare time, Cassie serves on the Board of Directors for the Zilker Botanical Garden Conservancy and mentors at the UT School of Architecture. A self-proclaimed plant nerd, she loves to get her hands dirty on the job site and in the garden. You might find her painting, drawing or hiking with her family on secret hill country trails.
