I am an Artist, Urban Designer, and Landscape Architect

 

Design is an interactive process between an individual and a client, an intensive process of evolution which capitalizes on the collective experiences of pragmatic, social, economic, creative and environmental harmony.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Conceptualizing thoughts and ideas with crayons and markers has evolved into a complex, sophisticated labor intensive, techno savvy dependant hyper realistic world.  I hope to continue to strive to make places which have character and charm scaled to the individual, not monuments to the individual.

 

While I cannot boast of an extensive Ivy League Education, I can however boast of a variety of extensive life learning journeys which have influenced my work ethos.

 

My experiences are broad and far reaching, shaped by my diverse education, extensive travel and observation and enriching professional experiences. I am continually seeking to create projects which are useful to the community of mankind, which endeavors to create moving and culturally enriching spaces. Seeking the optimum dynamics of people and places which will stimulate, motivate and encourage exceptional design. 

 

This is a place where I store my personal images, a place to store my thoughts and ideas, open for others to read, like a diary, exposed and dangerous. Like nerve endings, the images are acute, this is my work, this is my life, this is the way i was made to think.
