With more than 15 years of experience in landscape design, I have many skills to offer.  Some of my particular specialties include planting design, simplicity and elegance of design, low-impact development, grading and drainage, cost-efficiency, and consultant coordination and collaboration to realize an excellent landscape project.  My current interests focus on sustainable design and incorporation of art elements in my work.  I have a personal passion for implementing inviting and pleasing outdoor spaces that serve a diverse yet localized urban community. 

 For about 10 years between 2005 and 2015, I worked with three landscape architectural firms (Weisman Design Group, Cascade Design Collaborative and JA Brennan Associates) where I designed public schools, multifamily housing, parks, trails, streetscapes, community gardens and master plans.  Previous to that, I worked as an independent landscape designer and installer of residential properties for about 7 years.  In all, my portfolio includes more than 100 landscape design projects.

I studied landscape design and received a master’s degree in landscape architecture in 2004 at the University of Oregon in Eugene.  In 2011, I received my license as a landscape architect in the State of Washington.
