Troy Silva Co-Founder and Creative Director, Museum Of Natural Art

A childhood obsession with constructing elaborate terrariums and aquariums ultimately led Silva to pursue a degree in Landscape Architecture at Cornell University with additional emphasis in Business, and a study abroad in Environmental Sociology at the University of New South Wales.

After a brief stint designing exhibits for the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, Silva went on to launch his own landscape design firm in Los Angeles.

From there he dabbled in retail, created a line of customizable luxury planters (Urban Nature), and now spends most of his time as the Creative Director for MoNA (The Museum of Natural Art).
