Throughout his career, Ben has focused on providing design and management expertise on projects of considerable challenge, complexity and design intensity. Ben’s project experience includes theme parks, master planning, mixed use podium developments, parks, urban design, waterfronts, and estate residential design, with a particular focus in Creative Office and Higher Education Campus design. He excels at creating special and lasting relationships with the client and consultant group, resulting in a streamlined work flow and very efficient level of communication.

SHA formed out of a desire to collaborate with others- a process where a collective vision is discovered and implemented by pulling from the best of everyone. As an integral member of the project team we bring decades of combined technical and design experience in the field of Landscape Architecture. The best projects come from teams with a strong collective vision and a collaborative approach. 

Locally, we believe in supporting the community where we live and work. We strive to bring positive change to the communities we design for, as they can connect people, cultures, and the environment. At the global level, we seek to be better residents of the world through protecting our environment and natural resources.

We want to make places better. Better for people, better for communities, and better for the environment.
