Over the last 15 years, I have strived to become a dedicated, enthusiastic, and forward-thinking advocate of green
practices in the landscape industry. My love of landscaping began as a young boy growing up just outside London in
Aylmer, Ontario. Eventually this then led to my enrollment in Fanshawe College’s Landscape Design program in the fall of
2009 followed by the completion of Mohawk College’s Horticultural Apprenticeship Program in 2013. In 2018 I was
certified through Landscape Ontario’s “Fusion Landscape Professionals” certification program which focuses on creating
beautiful landscapes that save water, manage stormwater, and enhance livable spaces. With years of hands-on
construction experience coupled and a broad knowledge of horticulture, I ensure my all my designs are aesthetically
pleasing as well as functional, and wherever possible, environmentally sustainable. This includes the use of many native
plant species, plants that require very little water (once established) and that are tolerant of drought, planting for
biodiversity enhancement and the benefits of pollinators, and in a way that manages rainwater thoughtfully and artistically.
