Mark studied and practiced as a visual artist in the 1980’s and 1990’s. He has been a practicing landscape architect since 2002.

“I’m driven by the championing of intellectual and design rigour within our profession. My passion is for the landscapes and ecology of Subtropical South East Australia”.

“I believe the landscapes in which we live work and play can be beautiful, sustainable, productive and resilient.”

“Applying the skill sets developed from working in a regional area rich in scenic beauty, that is ecologically complex, having highly contested landscapes experiencing strong growth of the built environment, to projects nationally and internationally, is the exciting opportunity for the practice.”
