WGI Unleashed Podcast Episode 44 – Colter Sonneville, Landscape Project Manager
In this episode, we got to sit down in the Austin, TX office to chat with Colter Sonneville, Project Manager and Certified Arborist in our Landscape Architecture department.
We got to know Colter really well after recording this fantastic episode. Colter talked about how he moved to Austin, TX after visiting SXSW one year with his friends. He also discussed what it was like growing up in Crystal Lake and Chicago, Illinois and that he “…wasn’t born in Texas but I got here as fast as I could”. Colter also hit us with a bunch of ‘one-liners’ about Texas and discussed his hobbies which include bird watching and paddleboarding. We also got to hear about his quarantine dog Pinto, who was recused and adopted from Austin Pets Alive!.
