I'm working to strike a balance between contemporary landscape design and romantic expressions of garden - it's intended to be subtle and not slave to a minimalist art canvas or your grandmother's flower bed.
I work in urban landscapes + gardens, which may not appear that different, but the idea is regardless of scale or scope or project type (hotel, school, plaza, residence, office park) there is the opportunity for an individual connection with the outdoor environment, plants and people.
I believe gardens can change the world. Seriously. They are social spaces where we spend time together with one another, or alone with our thoughts, in the natural environment. Landscape design is about the sounds of leaves rustling in the wind, the smell of flowers and soil, or a place to watch bees float.
My designs are deliberate and purposeful, well thought out compositions that register graphically with form, texture, color but more importantly are meant to be experienced through that sixth sense of presence in a place.
Southern California is my locale which offers great opportunities for work. My clients are contemporary architects well versed in design and real estate development, in addition to private home owners who know nothing about horticulture or landscape architecture other than they want their yard to be "pretty".
Slogans I've used in the past:
1) Creating living spaces with a life of their own.
2) Market like a rock star.
Once the logo is done I'll want to do a website too!
