Johnny Shakir Macon, MLA is an educator and landscapes designer with diverse experience in built environment professional positions including planning, GIS, landscape design, and education. I have worked as a volunteer and as a professional with communities throughout Baltimore City and central Maryland. I have built strong relationships with community leaders, activists, and city officials, and I facilitated collaborations between community partners, local governments, nonprofit organizations, and local design practitioners. I have worked on project types including recreation design, streetscaping, landscape design, community engagement, and placemaking. I have conducted research at various stages starting in my undergraduate education. I am a consensus builder, an advocate, and I am strongly committed to civic engagement. I make effective use of my professional and personal experience to foster new opportunities for established healthy landscapes and communities. I am proud to bear the banner of "People First." That commitment guides my thinking and demands that I bring this outlook to every project in which I am involved.
