    • John Aceto, is a 4th year landscape architecture student from Iowa State University and will be interning in the Des Moines office. John is a Des Moines native, born and raised in Urbandale. He loves to play guitar, draw, and travel. He is happy to be back in his homeland of Des Moines, and is excited to learn more about landscape architecture here at Confluence!

      Jake Spitz is from West Bend, WI and will be interning in our Des Moines office. If you ever need to find him, he is most likely on the water. Growing up with a lake for a backyard and spending every second he can outdoors is the driving force behind his passion for landscape architecture.

      Zhuojia Lou will be interning in our Kansas City office. She is from Kaifeng, Henan, a small city in China. She loves dance, and has performed Chinese dance at the Chinese Spring Festival hosted by Chinese Students and Scholars Association for 4 years at ISU. Zhuojia also likes hiking, playing with her puppy, Doubao, and making hand crafts. She also owns an online Etsy shop.

      From Ida Grove, IA, Casey Ludwig will be interning in the Kansas City office. Casey has a passion for the outdoors, and her hobbies include (but are not limited to) snapping a great photo, biking, camping, or taking a last minute trip to find a sweet hiking trail. These activities are some of the many things that have driven her to pursue a degree in landscape architecture in hopes that she can protect and enhance the world we live in!

      Welcome aboard, we are glad to have you!
