    Human survival depends upon adapting ourselves and our landscapes – cities, buildings, roadways, rivers, fields, forests – in new, life-sustaining ways, shaping places that are functional, sustainable, meaningful, and artful, places that help us feel and understand the relationship of the natural and the built.

    My career as an author, landscape architect, photographer, and teacher has been dedicated to this goal.

    Visit, a gateway to my work and activities.
