“I’ve been passionate about the environment literally since childhood, when I focused on pollution issues and woodland preservation in high school. I have dedicated my practice to working in harmony with the site and nature by optimizing the “free” services provided by our natural environment such as sunlight, good soil, fresh water and clean air. Working for a healthier planet not only restores our natural resource base but creates wonderful places and spaces for people and all the creatures with whom we share our home, Earth.”
