Family / Interests / Hobbies: I married a KC girl in 2003. We have 6 boys and 1 girl. I enjoy skiing with my older boys, netflixing with my bride, and I like to dabble in bartending in between!
My favorite thing about Landscaping / Designing / Outdoors: I enjoy the seasons. It never gets boring as it is constantly changing.
My Inspiration: Other landscapes give me inspiration. I like to see something that I wouldn’t necessarily have thought of and implementing it into my palate. I also like to get inspiration from the natural beauty of nature’s landscapes. From the majestic rocky mountains, to the konza prairie, and the forested areas of the east, our area can be a crossroads of all these elements..
My ideal outdoor space: The naturalness of the Konzo Prairie or the Flint Hills. Nothing is forced or out of place.
What inspires me: An aged landscape that feels natural and cozy.
My favorite landscape style: I like them all, because they all have their place.
