I have been a self taught gardener and construction/ installation manager for 20 years on my own property in Water Mill, NY. The house that I rebuilt was featured in Elle Decor, Nov. 2013. I began formal study in Garden and Landscape Design at the New York Botanical Gardens in 2011. I received my certificate in Garden design in June, 2012 and received my certificate in Landscape Design in June 2013. I have also been a teaching assistant for site engineering at NYBG and tutor for my fellow students in engineering and graphics. I have slowly been building a clientel during my course of study and am now ready to launch a website and dive into helping people create their landscapes and gardens. December 2015, I made a major move to Seattle and am Secretary for the Washington Capter of APLD. I am currently doing site measuring and base map creation for other designers while I build clientele and resume as a landscape designer in Seattle. My focus is in Sustainable Design.
