Thank you for visiting my site. My passion for and love of plants and gardens began in the large country vegetable garden I created when I was thirteen. I was fortunate that my family owned one of the premier tropical greenhouses that specialized in interior tropical landscaping. My biophilic design and horticulture degree and years of hands on growing and buying experience were extraordinary.
Adding diversity to my life, I spent 20 years in the financial business as a member of the Chicago Board of Trade as a US Government Bond Options Trader and as an Associate Director at Bear Stearns Company. My philanthropic endeavors led me to chairing a Fine Arts Museum and a Decorative Arts and Garden Museum.
I have explored hundreds of nurseries and botanical gardens throughout America, Canada, Europe, Central and South America. Vertical green walls/living walls and creative biophilic design is my passion.
