After more than twenty years practicing landscape architecture, I’ve been quite fortunate in the places I’ve worked, the people that I’ve met, and the projects that I’ve been involved with, from designing two parks (Ellis Square and Eastern Wharf Park) in America’s most historic garden city Savannah, to creating a sculptural landscape at the Atlanta Financial Center. My experience has allowed me to breathe new life into old places like The Works and Northyards in Atlanta, and design new districts in Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and India. New Orleans, New York, and New Delhi are places where I can visit projects that I’ve been involved with. The culmination of these places, projects, and people with which I’ve come into contact with have made me who I am today – someone who gets to play through design crafting spaces that can generate the impact of memory. That’s pretty cool right?

When I’m not in work-play mode I devote myself to mostly play (and the hopefully less frequent home project). I enjoy cooking slow food, and discovering new recipes and drinks. I love to travel with my wife and look forward to my two daughters being old enough so I can do that again! A good Georgia football game, a good conversation, discovering something new or unseen, and a day in the sun all make me smile. I really don’t like being cold.

  1. What is something you love about Landscape Architecture?
    I was drawn to landscape architecture based on my love of building things, artistic expression, and the joy that I found in the natural world with change, growth, and place. Across my career I’ve found each of these elements to continue to bring me excitement, now layered with the collaborative nature of the design field. I’m continuously amazed at the impact that well crafted spaces and landscapes can have on human well-being, reinforcing communal ties, and the human spirit in general.

  2. If you could be a mixed drink, what would it be?
    Perhaps a greyhound. Just the right mix of sweet and sour for a summer afternoon.

  3. What is your favorite way to socially isolate?
    I’ve spent a good deal of time this summer gardening, playing with my kids, and walking about – but if I had my perfect form of isolation it would involve a beach, a hammock, some palm trees, and an ice cold drink.
