As the Principal Landscape Architect I have over 25 years experience in site engineering and planning.

I am a licensed Landscape Architect with extensive experience in site circulation design and storm water management including, monitoring for SPDES compliance.  I am also a Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control and a LEED Green Associate.

I have been responsible for all project phases including site analysis, schematic design, and production of construction documents, as well as construction administration. My knowledge of Landscape Architecture and site engineering allows me to provide a full range of site design services throughout the design and construction process.

I have designed and administered construction projects for residential subdivisions, commercial and industrial facilities. I have also written  environmental impact statements for highway corridors and evaluated sites  for construction feasibility. My active involvement in the grant process for the Onondaga County Save the Rain Program has secured approximately 1 million dollars in grants for various Syracuse businesses.
