About 

I am a license landscape architect (OR and WA) with over 20 years experience. My career has spanned nearly every facet of the landscape architecture profession. Particular focus has been on urban design and sustainability. I have worked on LEED buildings and sites, green streets, urban plazas and large mixed-use developments throughout the northwest.

 

In addition to my recent experience managing the Landscape Architecture Department of a mid-sized A/E firm, running my own firm for eight years gave me invaluable experience in all aspects of the profession and will translate immediately into any environment.  As a professional I am committed to providing landscapes of high aesthetic value that are sustainable and functional.
