Rikerrious Geter is a LEED Green Associate and graduate of the University of Georgia College of Environment and Design. Growing up in the North Georgia Mountains, the richness of the rural and natural landscapes impressed upon him the importance of experiencing nature within urban environments.
As a young design professional, Rikerrious examines and promotes how public space can best serve impoverished areas to encourage equitable, healthy and sustainable communities. He has spoken with middle and high school students and community organizations to advocate for the practice of landscape architecture as a means to improve community and ecosystem health.
In addition to practice, he serves on the Seattle Design Commission as a voting commission member for all city capital improvement projects, and the Washington Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (WASLA) – Student and Emerging Professional Committee where his responsibilities include event planning, mentorship, and providing oversight to the WASLA Academic Scholarship program at the University of Washington and Washington State University.
