Starting his career in public horticulture, Paul made the decision to embark on a second career in landscape architecture.  He has immersed himself in the climates of the Pacific Northwest, suburbs of Boston, and the mountains and lakes of New Hampshire. Each role has given Paul something new to add to his toolbox—from planting design and client interaction to construction document production. At Knickerbocker Group Paul will bring these skills to our growing Landscape Architecture division where he will create master plans for clients and their properties. After a programmatic direction is determined he will work with our various divisions and outside collaborators to ensure all details are sorted out and finalized.

When it comes to his design process Paul starts with listening. He prefers to let the client do the talking while guiding the conversation about how they like to experience their environment, both inside and outside. This crucial initial conversation allows Paul to work through the planning for various programmatic elements and experiences that will enhance their lifestyle and enjoyment of their property. He is a firm believer that design should be a fun process where clients feel like active participants and enjoy a positive outcome. Paul holds a bachelor’s degree in Plant Science from Cornell University and a master’s in Landscape Architecture from the University of Georgia.

A new transplant to Maine, Paul and his husband look forward to visiting museums, gardens, hiking and walking on the beach collecting shells. In Maine, Paul looks forward to less commuting and more time to get involved in local organizations.
