RE: Senior Management Position


Dear Brian:


Thank you for the opportunity to respond to your email of August 28I am certainly interested to apply for a senior management position with Hargreaves Associates. 

Please find attached my portfolio as requested, including a copy of Vision for the San Francisco Design District, together with an updated copy of my resume. 


The professional aim is to provide design solutions that are inherently contextual and sustainable. 


As project manager / landscape architect for campus and open space design key projects include Los Medanos College, the Santa Clara District Attorney’s Crime Lab, Shinnyo-En Buddhist Temple, and Upper Lillooet Forest Recreation Site.


As project manager / urban designer for commercial-mixed use design, key projects include 801 Brannan and 1 Henry Adams; in addition I contributed to the urban design, coordinated the adhoc planning group, and produced the Vision for the San Francisco Design District.


As project administrator for large and complex projects my responsibilities focused on project organization and delivery of services, notably for the Bay Area resort Aetna Springs.  Also at Aetna responsibilities included cultural landscape preservation planning and stream restoration; this built on earlier ecological restoration work such as the Field Margin Restoration Program.

Please consider how I may contribute at Hargreaves Associates.  I look forward to hearing from you.
