Living local, urban design, sustainability, landscape architecture, and places in the East Bay. Design that works where it is.

When I was 35 years old, I moved my family from Santa Cruz to San Luis Obispo to study Landscape Architecture. It was there I learned the importance of planting myself in the place where I am.
In 2008, I married Jan and we bought our home in Oakland. Jan works her magic on my posts, making them not only more readable but more accessible. If a post makes you smile, that’s Jan.
I’m a landscape architect, urban designer, and planner. The East Bay is in my blood.
