I love helping people to create delightful, functional and valued outdoor places. Nature is a teacher that we can learn from and bring into our everyday lives. I see myself as a collaborator - with everyday folk, families and communities to create a better world, one place at a time.


I am a multi-award winning registered landscape architect, community teacher and master gardener. With over 20 years of experience servicing clients in Brisbane and South East Queensland I have designed residential landscapes including ornamental and productive gardens, community gardens and public orchards,  parks and greenspaces, as well as written guidelines and practice notes for local government. I also coach and mentor adults and children on sustainable design, urban food, and nature play plus faciltate workshops on household retrofitting, and keep a large productive garden.


I hold degrees in landscape architecture and engineering, a cert 4 in training and assessment, and numerous certifications in permaculture design. Here's more information about me.
