Working closely with our clients as partners, we take meticulous care to listen, communicate, and inform them of the project’s progress every step of the way; bringing to fruition inspiring, beautiful and functional outdoor living spaces that exceed our client’s expectations.
Landscape Architecture and Sustainable Design, UCLA
My mission is to bring forth more beauty into the world, while inspiring and empowering others to do the same.
Wanting a change from my long career as a Creative Director in advertising and marketing 10 years ago, I decided I could no longer be part of the problem, that it was time I become part of the solution. By studying Landscape Architecture at UCLA, I realized my life’s purpose by combining my design skills with my passion for balancing humanity’s impact on the natural environment. Now on the path to certification in Sustainable and Permaculture Design, I am developing an online training program to teach better landscape design practices as well as writing my first book.
