Dan joined the firm in fall of 2015 after working primarily in the landscape construction industry. His approach to contemplative landscape design stems from the early mid-century notion that ‘seeing elevates consciousness.’ His confident point of view resonates with a modest and sophisticated ‘style’ to the private garden.
Dan earned his Master’s in Landscape Architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design in 2013 where he studied botany, land-water linkages, and theoretical practice. His undergraduate studies in landscape architecture at The Ohio State University helped inform his construction and practical based methods to design.
His favorite city is Chicago, an area with a strong historical and progressive landscape presence. He has sought to create spaces that perform as a reciprocal relationship between garden and structure and looks to redefine the way we occupy the ‘new American garden.’
