About this pro

Before we design patios and decks, before we add outdoor kitchens and create curb appeal, let’s start with how you want to feel in the space around your home.

We’ve found that by keeping an open mind, by listening to you — and to what your space is saying — we can bring you and your landscape into harmony.

We are here for you – let’s start this journey together.




I’m here to do one job: help you feel joyful when you open your front door to greet guests, relax in the backyard or look out your windows.

To do that, I approach each project listening to what you want and need while getting attuned to what your outdoor environment is telling you it wants. After all, it is a living, breathing space. It has something to say. Why not let it speak?

My love of the wild beauty of the Pacific Northwest combined with my childhood in historic Savannah, GA affords me a unique approach to place—and the magic that can happen when your place is honored.

I also have extensive experience in water conservation and watershed protection practices which inform my design decisions. To serve you best, I often collaborate with colleagues to ensure that you get the perfect mix of talent, experience and point of view.

My design education includes graduating from the University of Richmond’s Professional Landscape Design Program and work toward a Masters in Landscape Architecture at the University of Oregon. I also have extensive experience in water conservation and watershed protection practices which inform my design decisions.
