15+ years as a Designer & Concrete Craftsman working with shotcrete and high-velocity cement applications within the aquatic, structural, and themed sectors. Heavily focused currently on a passion for luxury swimming pool design and the outdoor environments/ landscapes/ hardscapes that define them, as well as an ongoing obsession with all things architectural concrete.
As a Designer, my approach is very creative and unique. I work directly with clients through every stage of the design process, building a conceptual platform utilizing a diverse set of tools including 2D drafted and manual sketches, 3D concepts and animations + physical mock-ups & models. I am highly adept at site evaluations and survey practices, as well as defining project financials, estimates, proposals, and construction drawings/ specifications. I navigate very well through the various project requirements and communications relating to project permitting, engineering and design, municipal & residential community entities, subcontractors, material & equipment suppliers & vendors.
As a Craftsman and Concrete Artisan, I work with an uncommonly diverse array of applications that include architectural or themed Shotcrete finishes for tie back walls; soil nail systems; poured wall covers; residential home exteriors; sculpted stone retaining walls + any variety of exterior hardscape including columns, arches, pavements, fireplaces, swimming pool rock work features, grottoes, slides, animal/ zoo habitats, and themed residential home interiors.
