Hunter White received his Bachelor of Science in Horticulture and Landscape Design from Montana State University. After receiving his degree, he moved to Chicago where he was an operations manager for the landscape firm of Brickman for three years. During his time in Chicago, Hunter developed an interest in downtown park and plaza spaces in dense urban environments.

Hunter decided to further his studies at the University of Colorado Denver, earning a Master’s of Landscape Architecture degree. During his time at CU Denver, Hunter was the president of the student chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, through which he met Landwise owner Jesse Young. The design/build concept appealed to Hunter, so he jumped on board with Jesse in May 2014. Hunter continues to volunteer for ASLA Colorado as the representative to the GreenCO Legislative Committee.
