About 

I am very interested in the recently posted landscape architect positions.  I am a Florida registered landscape architect and have extensive experience working on a variety of multi-disciplinary public and private projects.  I have far-reaching understanding of preparing and overseeing the production and preparation of design development and construction drawings.  I have managed the design and construction of a variety of simple and complex projects from median landscapes to complete streetscape design and implementation.  As such, I have a thorough understanding of the design process including hardscape design and construction and the art of arranging plants in an aesthetically pleasing functional and attractive fashion. 

I have extensive leadership and management experience.  This experience includes managing a professional design office, project manager and client relations.   As a project manager, I am able to understand complex situations and able to synthesize creative solutions that can be completed on a set schedule and within in established budgets.  I can effectively, in a clear and concise manner, communicate via e-mail and letters and have effective, personable and professional telephone and face-to-face verbal conversation skills.
