I am a "green industry" pro with over 25 years of experience in the related fields of landscape architecture and construction, land-use planning, and site development. I have written extensively about green infrastructure, garden design, urban forestry, and humanity's interaction with our planet's fragile environmental systems.

My promise to each and every client is to provide well-researched, quality writing in original words; not with pre-packaged templates or tired clichés, but with unique solutions that effectively and consistently inform and inspire your audience.

Please check out the professional services listed below to see how I can help with your next writing project.
