ABOUT

PHILOSOPHY

 My practice is driven by the power of landscapes to affect social conditions and quality of life, a dedication to environmental functionality, and embracing the evolution of a modern aesthetic. For me as a lifelong artist, environmentalist, and designer, landscape Architecture presents a unique opportunity to influence the world from the ground up. Experience working in urban environments, both in the public and private sectors, heightens my awareness of the systems in which design operates and expands my understanding of accessibility.
