Q&A

Where do you get you design inspiration from?
I draw inspiration from from all my surroundings. I often like to take walks through different areas in the city to see how things were built, how they are performing, and how they can be improved.

What project are you most proud of?
I am most proud of a 3-acre community park that I was able to renovate as a general contractor. I enjoyed working through different design challenges in the field, including modifying trail ways and other hardscape elements to protect existing mature trees. The most rewarding part of this was seeing the end product being used by the community: kids playing ball, people using the dog park, and others exercising along the trails.
