I am a registered landscape architect and urban planner (contact info. above and in my resume). I focus on work with churches and nonprofits in the preparation of conceptual landscape plans. I am located in central North Carolina but it has been possible to exchange enough information through the internet for me to help distant committees and groups with sketches that explore solutions to existing site problems or areas affected by changes such as building renovations and expansions.

Please contact me if a need arises at the initial stages of a landscape design project, or for grounds renovations guidance.

Examples of recent digital graphic and design work are found below: (Click to enlarge)












Most "matured" work for office, campus, and commercial buildings would be hard to read as plans on the web (due to size reduction), but a few sample field photos are furnished below.

North Carolina projects began with the entry courtyard for the West Market Street United Methodist Church in downtown Greensboro, NC while employed by John V. Townsend and Associates. I later provided the master landscape plans for the Greensboro Historic Museum grounds and for medical and general office projects and nonprofit sponsored multifamily group homes and apartment complexes.
