Michelle Tong


Michelle has a strong interest in the intersection between sustainability and design. Growing up in Dallas, Texas, Michelle loved to play the piano and harp and create mixed media art. She would often go on walks at local parks and nature preserves in her hometown with her parents in the evenings, especially in the summertime. At Yale University, Michelle studied Mechanical Engineering and Architecture and spent much of her time outdoors in the Yale Science Quad with friends or admiring the view of New Haven from East Rock. With the realization that most of her studio projects were focused on landscape, Michelle joined Reed Hilderbrand in 2022. Michelle has a passion for boardgames, and she also enjoys weaving and spending time outside.
