My vision for producing impressive designs that are buildable and within the clients’ budget is evident
since assuming the leadership roles as manager/director for landscape architecture at Poggemeyer
Design Group, Galaxy Entertainment, Venetian Casino Resort Parcels & in Macau, SAR China and
the role as Principal Landscape Architect for the King Abdullah Financial District in Riyadh, Saudi
Arabia. My experience in Las Vegas and Riyadh where duplicate climates allowed me to transition
seamlessly in the landscape design processes.
My roles as Landscape Design Manager and Site Landscape Manager has enabled my employers to fill
two critical roles at a much lower cost and have one point of communication, minimizing response
times and providing knowledge in both the design and construction industry.
I draw from years of experience in both the Public and Private sectors, working in a multi
disciplinary atmosphere to ensure design accuracy, consistency, and client satisfaction. My project
experience includes resort & community planning, recreation planning, urban design, landscape/land
use planning, casino/resort design and environmental assessments. In addition, I have assisted in the
creation of the Landscape Design curriculum at George Washington University in the United States.
My experience in design offices has elevated my career. Working closely with architects, engineers and
planners has allowed me to gain insight to other disciplines such as civil engineering, architecture,
planning and the ability to resolve issues during the construction process. I have also played key roles
in marketing, bringing in new projects, making presentations to clients, government bodies and the
general public to gain approvals prior to construction start up.
Environmental experience includes wetlands delineations for more than projects in the US including
wetlands mitigation design in US states.
