About me

I am lifelong gardener and passionate environmentalist. I grew up in Illinois and have early childhood memories picking tomatoes and green beans in my mother's garden. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Agriculture from Murray State University. I led backpacking trips for kids in the mountains of Colorado. I built trails in the rocky forests of New Hampshire. And for the last 10 years I have been designing, building, and maintaining beautiful gardens in the Seattle area.


Current project

Pruning trees (fruit, Japanese Maples, Harry Lauder's Walking Stick to name a few).


Type of gardener

Permaculture
