He is a State of Florida licensed Landscape Architect and a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects.

For ten years he was based in Caracas, Venezuela with frequent travels to Brazil. In South America his practice included small private gardens, large residential estates, government buildings, parks and large tourist resorts.His interest in horticulture and the lack of plant material availability provided him the opportunity to create what became one of the largest private ornamental nurseries in Venezuela. At the nursery he experimented with natives and exotics. Seeds and cuttings were brought in from South Florida, Hawaii, New Zealand, Mexico and Brazil.
