Profile Information

I am a...
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Landscape Architecture last year in May of 2016. Since then I have not had the smoothest start to my career. I have had a few runs with some companies but have had quite a stir of bad luck. Despite these issues I have never stopped working in order to keep developing my skills as a landscape designer. I have worked both in the office and out in the field doing site installations. While searching for employment I have also done freelance design. If you or anyone you may know that is currently looking for an entry level candidate feel free to go through my portfolio as provided in the links or send me an email. I would be more than happy to reply regarding any questions or comments.

I enjoy traveling to cities and go on road trips quite often. You can usually find me hanging around Washington DC quite a lot and skating with my friends at Freedom Plaza. If I am not skating then I am either exploring cities or doing freehand sketches in my sketchbook.

My overall goal as far as what lies ahead for me next in my upcoming years is to work under a licensed landscape architect. From there I can then take the LARE exam in order to obtain my license. I am always ready for new learning experiences and hoping for more to come around in the near future.

Hello Brian;

I couldn't open the LINKS you show above, for some reason.  But, I did look over your PORTFOLIO.  In my professional opinion, considering you're a 2013 LA graduate....I believe your LA works looks very solid.  I know it's been a VERY competitive market out there over these past 8 yrs....the economy has been, IMO, pretty weak. Many LA grads have been struggling to find that first (entry level position).

If you'll contact me @  I'd be happy to make a few suggestions that might help you.

Usage of Native Plant Material in Landscape Architecture 52 Replies

Can anyone out there recommend sites that would have somewhat scholarly papers on the use of native plants. I am looking for advocates of this practice and those who feel it is nonsense. I'm not looking for books, looking for papers. This for a side…Continue
