One of the most important things a skilled designer can bring to a project is cohesion. Since 2004, my firm has been creating spaces that are refreshingly simple in structure, while richly textured through material and plant choices. We do this by bringing the ecology of the site, the architecture, and our client’s needs together with a clear aesthetic.
This approach stems from extensive experience in the arts and landscape design. After a successful career fundraising for major cultural institutions, I earned a certificate in landscape architecture (with distinction) from UCLA Extension in 2009. The years following included design work at Lenkin Design, a boutique firm specializing in high-end residential projects and North East Trees, a design/build firm with a focus on sustainable design. I believe in civic engagement and sit on the Board of South Pasadena Beautiful, in addition to working on pro bono community projects.
In 2014, I became a licensed landscape architect, and today my firm is engaged in projects ranging from urban courtyards to rural getaways. We also help our clients’ projects run smoothly by seamlessly interfacing with other members of the project teams, such as contractors, architects, interior designers, and engineers. This collaborative spirit is at the heart of every successful project we undertake.
