HI, Leslie

                My name is Chris Brown and I am a student currently enrolled in the young scholars program at the University of Maryland and in was wondering if you would be interested in answering two to three short questions for me about your experiences in landscape architecture. I’m very interested in this profession and I would love to hear about it personally from you. Thanks so much for your time and consideration and I can’t wait to hear from you!!    Sincerely, Chris Brown

You just took a 65 post chaotic discussion and made it all make sense in an understandable way in a single post. I wish I could write that well because I meant exactly what you are saying, but no matter what I do, it just does not come off that way.

 

... I see this is not the first time you impressed me.

Leslie,

Your post on the state of the profession described exactly what I see and have seen. It is interesting to hear the same assessment from someone sitting on the other side of the table (regulator vs. consultant).
