What I Do:
I am an entrepreneurial landscape architect with a personal mission of making people’s lives better through landscape architecture. This personal mission fuels all my professional life.
My philosophy is that landscapes should be beautiful, but they shouldn’t stop there. Landscapes also should be put to work. From low-impact and restorative environmental design to traffic calming and complete streets, effective landscape architecture that incorporates creative thinking about how a space could work on many levels can propel good projects into greatness.
That’s why I love public space and pursue every opportunity to apply value-added landscape architecture to all public projects. To me, landscape architecture is about the experience of outdoor space. No project exists that can’t benefit from landscape architecture that delivers an improved user experience.
As part of CRANSTON’s senior management team, I see staff development as my top priority. My staff represents my own little work community. The more my staff grows and internalizes the vision, the more our outside community partners benefit through smooth, professional, creative, and cutting-edge project delivery.
