Passion, respect, relationships, variety and fun define how I approach my work. I consider myself lucky to be involved in an expansive profession composed of clients, co-workers, vendors, subcontractors and other professionals from a multitude of specialties and backgrounds, and that offers the opportunity for us to share our life and professional experience. The only thing constant in life is change, and those of us in this dynamic industry need to embrace that change to learn, grow and thrive while making the world a better place.
I have been involved in the landscape design/build industry since 2003. Working and learning my way across the country – from Ohio to Illinois to Colorado and now Wisconsin – I have gained invaluable experience. As a professional, I convey the importance of ethics and a focus on sustainable design, while diligently striving to be my best in all I do.
I love the outdoors. Finding it difficult to pursue 14,000’+ peaks and board thousands of acres of fresh powder here in Wisconsin, I still like to spend as much time as possible hiking, backpacking and camping. When I’m not working, you can find me alongside my wife Lizzy, our twins and our black lab – strolling through the woods behind our house, playing in the yard or park, and getting dirty at one of the area’s many nature preserves or state forests. I’m looking forward to being involved with and learning more about fishing and hunting opportunities in Wisconsin, and bringing the kids up with the same, Midwest-family values I was so lucky to have had during my formative years. I also enjoy trying new restaurants, running, reading, movies, woodworking and entertaining family and friends with cooking/grilling, craft beverages, lawn games and the always predictable bad joke or two.
