I am passionate about the wise use and development of our natural environment. I am equally concerned about the people who live in that environment. My mission is to integrate people and the environment in a mutually beneficial harmony.
I was born in Chicago Illinois and grew up in many places throughout the U.S and overseas. I ultimately attended High School in Mandeville Louisiana, served in the United States Coast Guard, and earned a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree from the highly ranked Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture in the College of Art & Design at Louisiana State University.
My professional experience is diverse and extensive. Beginning humbly, designing residential landscapes and gardens I honed my design, technical, business, and management skills through a number of employment opportunities. Never satisfied, I pushed boundaries and embraced every opportunity to develop myself professionally and personally. Over the years I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to provide my skills, expertise, and service to a number of companies, private clients, commercial enterprises, municipal, state and governmental initiatives and projects.
Throughout this time I have developed a practical skill set that spans a diverse spectrum of practice areas. From small residential garden design, estate design & management, commercial permitting and regional planning. My professional portfolio includes: residences, commercial properties, institutional memorial gardens, civic plazas, public recreation facilities and swimming pools, even multi-modal transportation corridors and municipal land use plans.
I endeavor to apply my education, skills and experience to serve each client, customer and employee of mine to the best of my abilities. I strive to offer uniquely customized solutions to each, situation that is presented.
