The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams – Eleanor Roosevelt

I first wanted to become a landscape architect when I was working as a Property Operation Coordinator for a 44 acre island resort in San Diego. I loved the atmosphere and how the plants created a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of urban life. From then on, I pursued my degree in Landscape Architecture from California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo.

After college I had an amazing opportunity to live in Italy and travel throughout Western Europe. This experience was a big influence and expanded my design capabilities in urban spaces, parks, private and public areas. Already being fluent in Spanish, I was able to learn Italian and began designing for commercial and residential spaces.

After these adventures love for the California sun brought me back home and what a better place to start my life then in Sunny San Diego.
