Brian’s interest in landscape architecture is grounded in the overlapping layers of context, history and community dynamics that uniquely influence each site. Understanding these influences and translating them into the creation of outdoor spaces that are well used and beloved is the end goal of each design. 

He has worked across a wide range of scales and project types with a focus on complex, urban projects and active collaboration with owners, architects, engineers, artists, and scientists. Brian particularly enjoys working with project stakeholders to understand each unique perspective and build consensus through design solutions. He has applied this approach to design processes for public, private, and institutional clients and communities.

Brian left his native Midwest for the Pacific Northwest in 2005 and stays involved in his adopted community as a member of the Seattle NE Design Review Board and various volunteer design efforts. Outside of the Workshop, Brian enjoys hiking, cycling, travel, and following Formula One racing.

He received his MLA from Ball State University and is a licensed Landscape Architect in Washington.

Brian's recent projects include Block 21 on Amazon's Denny Regrade campus, Foss Central Park, and Trailside Apartments
