I joined the Appel Osborne team

When it became a firm in 1998.  Before that time, I was an employee of Appel Goff Associates.

My goals are

to complete design and construction projects on time and under budget.  It is also my goal to create projects that are unique to the site and create an environment that the user feels is special to the area.  I like to work on projects where the client and design team have fun and have a positive experience throughout design and construction.

Words to live by

"Treat others as you would want them to treat you."

"Never lie.  It's better to state what you do know truthfully rather than make something up to look and feel important.  You're only fooling yourself."

In addition to Landscape Architecture, I enjoy…

riding my bicycles in the city, in the woods, and in all types of landscapes.  I enjoy hiking, especially in the Adirondack High Peaks - I am an aspiring Adirondack 46er with 13 peaks left to complete my badge.  I also enjoy snowshoeing, driving, and golf.
