Family/Interests/Hobbies: I have amazing family and friends here in the KC area that I spend most of my time with. I enjoy tackling remodel projects on my house, spending time with my future wife Kelly, our zoo of pets and exercising..
My favorite thing about Landscaping/Designing/Outdoors: I enjoy the whole construction process of a project and watching it transform from start to finish. Some of my favorite days are working with crews on the job site.
My Inspiration: Working with clients and turning their ideas into reality.
Who taught me my most valuable lesson and what it was: My parents and grandmother. My parents have always been there for me and taught me the value of hard work. My grandmother taught me strength. No matter how she felt or what was going on, she would always smile when I walked into her house and put her family first.
Valuable construction/design lesson: Take the time on site visits to really evaluate the whole property because everything can affect the outcome of the design..
My ideal outdoor space: A well designed hardscape with a detailed paver patio, seat walls, fire pit and a bubbling water feature in the distance.
My favorite landscape style: A natural look with a good mix of evergreens, color and well placed boulders.
