Steve always has his camera at the ready to capture beauty at all scales – from the essence of an overall design to the micro-details of a bloom. He has been located in Southern California since 2014, where he enjoys both the weather and opportunity to grow his plant knowledge. Steve finds inspiration exploring on walks with his dog, touring exquisitely-designed parks and gardens, his many travels abroad and of course, on Instagram.

Steve’s experience within the firm’s Construction Administration team has given him expertise in not only the aesthetics of planting design but the practical knowledge of what particular plants need to thrive in a variety of contexts, from gritty, urban streetscapes to expansive rural estates. Since joining the firm in 2006, Steve has contributed planting expertise to several of the firm’s largest and most complex public greening projects, including the 15-acre McGovern Centennial Gardens in Hermann Park, the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden in Iowa, and more than 40 private gardens from coast to coast.
