I am a landscape architect with practical skills and a passion for creating sustainable outcomes - a big-picture thinker with an eye for detail!
I help land owners and land management agencies to build rich, sustainable and valuable places and communities by getting creative solutions approved and constructed.
I do this by:
✓ Listening carefully to clients and stakeholders, using IAP2 engagement processes;
✓ Collaborating with artists to create landscapes that integrate art and sculpture to make evident the layers of a site's history and the richness of the community and environment that has created it;
✓ Using sustainable landscape techniques, employing natural ecological processes where possible to create landscapes with low embodied energy, biological diversity and a long life, and employing permaculture principles as appropriate;
✓ Using my wide network of specialist consultants such as building designers and architects, ecologists, horticulturists, engineers, and graphic designers, who contribute to projects as associates as needed.
I have experience and qualifications in a wide range of areas associated with landscape design:
✓ I have been a senior consultant landscape architect with a number of leading international multi-disciplinary consultancies and boutique design-and construct firms.
✓ I have a range of old-tech & new-tech skills gained in a variety of roles within the landscape/horticulture industry, and am as comfortable with a pencil as a mouse!
✓ Able to work efficiently and effectively with clients, consultants and the public, I empower the teams that surround me with my humanistic approach to leadership.
I undertake projects large and small statewide, where I can help clients maximise the value of places, property and people.
Can I help you devise a creative solution, and assist you through the process of getting it built?
