Derek Reeves – Meet a B&V'er – Board & Vellum Team

Derek Reeves

Senior Associate | Residential Landscape Studio Lead

Landscape architecture was a fall-back for Port Gamble native Derek. His first passion was photography, but when it came to choosing a course of study, he decided to pursue a more structured career path.

Photography has remained a big part of Derek’s life, but his eye for framing a beautiful scene is evident in his landscape designs as well. Since earning his BLA at Washington State University, he has created unique and compelling outdoor spaces for urban infill projects, campuses, communities, and private residences. After working as a landscape designer and project manager at GGLO, Land Morphology, et al., Derek joined Board & Vellum in fall 2016.

When he isn’t designing landscapes or taking photos, Derek enjoys skateboarding, woodworking, and brewing beer. He lives on Bainbridge Island with his wife and two young children.
