Darren grew up in a small town in the Colorado Rockies which cultivated a love for Colorado native and adaptive planting and a desire to see all lawns replaced. But don’t misunderstand, he’s still in favor of ‘patio beers’ and outside spaces conducive to drinking his precious coffee, playing scrabble, and hanging with his kids.

During Darren’s tenure in the profession, he has been involved in numerous Federal and State level design projects with roles ranging from project manager to technical documentation. His firsthand knowledge of the nuances associated with federal funding and government projects allows for smooth project progression. Darren’s reliability and solid communication skills combined with his strong background in planting, site and grading design, and technical documentation make him an ideal project manager.

Darren claims to be expecting an invitation to the Masters golf tournament any day now, but while he’s waiting, this highly knowledgeable licensed landscape architect with experience in a wide variety of projects, from regional planning to urban design to botanic gardens, is reinventing his world one landscape at a time.

“As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks — on your body or on your heart — are beautiful.”
