Teaches: Sketch-Up; Advanced Design
I’ve had the pleasure of teaching in the Horticulture Department at Merritt College since 2010. I’m passionate about the subjects I teach and enjoy sharing my knowledge, but I also recognize that an effective teacher never stops learning. So I’m constantly studying new resources to stay a step ahead. I received a degree in Landscape Architecture from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, in 1987 and became licensed in 1989 (#3472). Most of my career has focused on residential design/build, including 12 years owning and managing a landscape architecture design/build firm in Seattle. I currently have a landscape architecture practice (www.mladesigngroup.com) that serves the East Bay.
