Born in Portland (a very long time ago!) I currently live with my wonderful family in Carver. We are fortunate to have a beautiful property complete with a creek and plenty of acreage for our animals (goats and dogs). My wife and I have 2 great kids; Grace age 9 and Calvin age 5. Although they drive us crazy from time to time we are having the time of our lives raising them. When we aren’t cleaning up after our kids or breaking up a fight we enjoy spending time at our home, heading off to the beach, or simply spending time as a family. My favorite part of working in this industry is being able to work with so many different people, being able to work outside in great weather (sometimes!) and truly being someone our clients can count on.
I joined the ValleyScapes team in the spring of 2017. I bring 10 years of landscape maintenance experience to the team. My husband and I recently re-located to Troutdale from northern California. When I am not working, I love spending time with my husband and 2 dogs. On weekends, I can be found hiking in the gorge, checking out a new pizzeria or brewery, or training for a half marathon. I enjoy exploring new areas, whether it’s a local hidden gem or overseas. I would like to visit Lambeau Field one day… GO PACKERS!
I was Born and raised in the Portland area. Entered the landscape field in 1988. I spent 3 years working with landscapes in San Diego broadening my horticultural awareness. Away from work my wife, dogs and I travel around the state searching for great dog trails, creeks to splash in, and the perfect dog stick. My drive in landscaping is multi-fold. I strive to provide knowledge and awareness to my teams and clients while producing aesthetically pleasing and sustainable landscapes and building great relationships.
The future may include more time in Kona Hawaii learning about landscape challenges there.
