As a designer, I enjoy the challenge of designing for complex spaces, difficult niches and the urban micro-climate. My design solutions aim to be beautiful, but also truly functional, drought tolerant, and easy to maintain. A former research analyst, I approaches each landscape project as a problem set in need of a creative solution. I have a masters in Landscape Architecture from the University of Maryland, where I was a recipient of the Masters of Landscape Architecture Award of Excellence. Since moving to Seattle, I have developed a small residential practice based in South Seattle.
