Shawn Sinn
Director of Operations and Sustainability

Shawn is a landscape designer and ecologist who specializes in the integration of native plant communities into the built environment. After graduation, Shawn began his professional career by working as draftsman and crew foreman for a small residential landscape design/build firm in Central Illinois. It was here that he was exposed to the build side of the industry and learned the importance of detail specific construction. Although Shawn appreciated the challenge of designing small spaces, his desire was to work in the ecosystems restoration field. In 2004 Shawn was hired by a local environmental construction company as a field supervisor in charge of managing ecosystems restoration projects. He served as project manager on both large and small scale installations that included elements of ecosystems restoration, native landscape installation, water resource management, and site stewardship. At Environments Studio, Shawn strives to blend Matt's unique design vision with the principles of sustainability to create lasting environmentally responsible spaces.
