Brian was born and raised in Boone, NC and enjoyed all the offerings that the mountains provided, especially downhill skiing.  His passion for all things outdoors led him to complete his undergraduate degree in Landscape Horticulture from NCSU.  Brian then decided to move westward and continue his graduate education in Denver, Colorado where the mountains continued to call to him. During Brian’s years in Colorado, he expanded his mastery of design and grew to love and explore native plants and landscapes.  Much of Brian’s work reflects his love and respect for nature and his commitment to the integrity and preservation of existing spaces.

Brian has spent the past 15 years in Bend, Oregon where he applied his knowledge and skills in landscape design in tandem with construction management.  With three growing children, Brian and his wife made the decision to move back to North Carolina to be closer to family.  While working alongside colleagues, Brian continues to express his love for designing natural, sustainable, and beautiful spaces for clients.
