Most notable professional accomplishments:
My most notable accomplishment has been to promote and advance the importance of the Profession of Landscape Architecture within a Major Architecture Practice. I have been very fortunate to have been involved in the planning and design of some of HOK’s most significant work. The variety, complexity, and global reach of our practice has attracted some incredibly talented people. My role has been to actually lead, or position the leadership of this talent to prominent positions on our projects and to stimulate creative thinking and problem solving to help our clients. I absolutely love the role I play as a Landscape Architect in improving the quality of people’s lives.
Thoughts on being elected to Council of Fellows: I never dreamed in a million years that I could ever be even considered to become an ASLA Fellow. I am very honored and feel quite humbled at this recognition. I have been incredibly blessed to work at a firm that is so supportive and exposes us to so many incredible opportunities. The quality of the people in our group and the work they do is amazing. I know my recognition, as a Fellow is a direct result of many creative and hard working friends and an incredibly supportive wife and family. THANK YOU.
