Landscape architecture has captivated me for so many years because it deals with forces that are constantly in motion. It requires thinking in the long term and planning for not only how the environment is changing, or the siting of a tree for successful growth over the next 50 years, but also for how the human uses of a landscape will change over time. Landscape Architecture is a physical manifestation and combination of biology and botany, construction and design.
In 2000, I transferred from Oberlin College to the University of Oregon Landscape Architecture program. While in school, I took opportunities to study Landscape Architecture and Historic Preservation in Japan and Italy, and also worked with the National Park Service in Alaska as an historic architect.
After graduating in 2004 from the University of Oregon with a Landscape Architecture degree, I worked as an apprentice stonemason with a local design build company. During that time I worked on many landscapes throughout Oregon, as well as in Florida and California.
In 2009, I began work as an estimator and project manager with a focus on wetland restoration and large state and federal projects. In 2012, I started Slate Creek Landscape Construction, LLC to continue building landscapes in the Willamette Valley. I feel fortunate to live here in Eugene, and am looking forward to many years of working here.
