Crew Leader, Design & Installations
Born and raised in the Bridgetown neighborhood of Barbados, Jonathan Boyce moved to New York eleven years ago. While obtaining his degree in Urban Sustainability from Brooklyn College, he helped support himself by working as a Coney Island Senior Life Guard, where he learned to keep a cool head while coordinating emergency rescue efforts. His aspirations of becoming a landscape architect focused on ecological restoration and green infrastructure led him to discover Brooklyn Grange, and after helping the Design and Installation team install a South Bronx green roof, he joined the business full time as Crew Leader in early 2017. He now brings his equipment proficiency to bear on the department's landscaping jobs, skillfully maneuvering front end loaders and bobcats. When he's not building tool cabinets, he can be found swimming, biking, hiking, or training for a Spartan Race.
