Three years of professional training in registered Landscape Architectural Firms to qualify for a Licence to practice Landscape Architecture. Licence obtained in New York State-1994.


Eight years as an employee in registered Landscape Architectural Firms, and Multi-disciplinary Firms of Architects, Planners and Engineers in Philadelphia and New York provided a solid base of experience in a variety of projects. Projects ranged from private residences, housing development, urban renewal schemes, and landscape restoration of historical landscapes, play-grounds and public parks.

Self-employment as a sole trader, since 1992, has provided an holistic approach to design development experience and the opportunity to work on wide range of project types, (locally, nationally and internationally) including landscape assessments (EIS), and landscape conservation assessments.

Training - Lecturing

Landscape design demands skills such as conveying concepts of design both graphically and verbally to private and public clients. Eight years lecturing landscape design to amenity horticulture students at University College Dublin (UCD), and four years, so far, at Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) to architecture students has presented an opportunity to develop this skill. Lecturing has both informed my personal journey and provided valuable insights on how to communicate ideas, information, supporting best practice and contributing to the development of skills within the profession.
