Project Manager & Landscape Designer
Richard comes to Groundwork Studio with roughly twenty years landscape construction, maintenance, and irrigation experience in the Albuquerque area, most recently as the Water Authority’s Irrigation Efficiency Specialist. He is passionate about the interplay and relationships between communities and their surroundings, so sees working at Groundwork Studio as a perfect way to combine community planning and landscape architecture. As a former arborist Richard cares deeply for healthy trees, healthy landscapes, and ultimately, healthy communities. Richard can often be found roasting coffee on the weekends or early in the morning, walking his family dogs or riding his bike to work.
