I came across this article
titled, "10 Habits that Bosses Love."
It lists 10 habits that get you on the "boss's A-List". It is geared more to the office/cubicle environment but still is applicable in our work. I have got one of them down... only nine more to go!

Just thought I'd start something on my blog. Nothing much to say right now except how hot and humid it is in Shanghai. better that being in Bahrian though where our landscape team are currently working on the landscape master plan for a championship golf course at Durrat Al Bahrian.
It is not a project I am particularly proud of, I'd much rather be designing wetland parks or restoring rivers. having to create artificial lakes and golf… Continue

Just a quick note to say that I am in Hawaii for the week and am enjoying the tropical plant material, the sun, and the warm water! It is very different than the cold climate of Northern California...
I have learned a few new plants (Common Names):
Hong Kong Orchid
Monkey Pod Tree
I will upload some pictures soon...

I have noticed quite a few students using Land8Lounge....as well as a fair number of young-ish professionals. Not that I am an old man…but I would like to share some lessons learned regarding decisions made after completing my undergraduate study in landscape architecture.
When I completed my undergraduate program, I was pretty unsure about what I wanted to do with my life. I really wasn't ready to work, and at the time school and studio in particular were incredibly fun and… Continue
