As landscape designer and lead illustrator for SPLA, Inc. I have a wealth of experience in all phases of landscape architecture services, from conceptual development to construction administration.  I excel at graphic design and have strong skills in creating hand and digital renderings, perspectives, and three-dimensional models.  I am dedicated to creating sustainable designs, and have attained LEED certification on multiple projects through incorporating non-potable water use, broad canopy trees, and drought tolerant plant species.  One such project designed by the SPLA team achieved a Silver rating, as the landscape at Toyota of Santee was irrigated using reclaimed water from the on-site car wash.   

I am enthusiastic, quick to learn, imaginative, and driven to create landscapes that conscientiously integrate urban and natural systems.  I am able to manage multiple projects, meet deadlines, and maintain a flexible, open-minded attitude.
