Philip has been interested in gardening since growing up in Kent, Connecticut, where he worked most weekends with his father planting and tending to perennial beds, repairing century-old stone walls and caring for a half-acre vegetable garden.
Now years later, he has turned his longstanding passion into more than a hobby. Transitioning from a career as a lawyer and lobbyist in Washington, D.C., Philip has recently completed George Washington University’s Landscape Design program and launched his own firm to help others enjoy their outdoor space as much as he always has.
Philip approaches landscape design by combining the uniqueness of each site and the surrounding architecture with the people who will be experiencing the space. He listens closely, a skill honed in his former career, and works with clients to design solutions that reflect their personal style. Through the use of clean lines and a broad palette of plants, Philip creates distinctive spaces that enhance the way people live and enjoy their homes.
Philip is an active member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers. He received his undergraduate degree from Northeastern University, a Masters in Political Communication from Emerson College and a J.D. from The John Marshall Law School. Philip maintains his license to practice law in New York and the District of Columbia.
