About Me
Growing up in Michigan, I always dreamed of the tropics.

At Florida State University, I studied Interior Design and Housing. Prior to graduation, I started a residential design business that ultimately designed over 6,000 homes and expanded into construction and development.

I’m certified by the Institute of Classical Architecture and President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Belize.

I am currently developing Carmelita Gardens on the Belize River in the Caribbean Heartland in the Cayo District, Belize, as an off-grid gardening community.

Many esteemed architects and land planners are now talking about and planning “New Ruralism”, “Agricultural Urbanism” and “Sustainable” communities. Carmelita Gardens is part of that new movement, one that emphasizes independence and self-sufficiency and is reminiscent of how successful frontier towns were built. Carmelita Gardens is where people can be, as we say, “Independent Together”.
