i am a garden designer and educator interested in cultural conceptions of nature and how these conceptions are represented and perceived in manufactured landscapes as natural phenomenon. 

i am curious about the history (and continuation) of primitive accumulation through enclosure and the inherent violence in the idea of land as property.

gardens as ideas materializing.
lizards and mulch piles.
pixels and trace paper.
flipping through pages.
turning over stones.

we fight for roses, too
