After 10 years of Landscape design with my partner, I moved on to get my Master of Architecture at Sci-ARC in Los Angeles. Having been involved with both ever since, my interests in each discipline are as similar as my interests are in the quality of work I engage in and the quality of relationships which I value. The workplace and my relationships with others are very important to me.
