I'm proud to say, my thesis titled, THE GREAT COMMISSION OF CHURCH LANDSCAPES, is now complete and ready for public view.  It will eventually be available through the UGA library, but I wanted to make it available here as well.

Well, I'm relieved to say my MLA thesis draft is complete!  And I want your feedback on both the writing and topic, critical and encouraging!  I believe God has inspired this writing and I want my family, friends, church circle, influential designers and church leaders to be a part of this important revolution of church landscapes.

I will be defending this thesis on April 11th from 2-4 pm in Athens.  You are welcome to attend and take part in the discussion.  I want to include all feedback and edits into my final submission in mid-April so send me all that you have as soon as possible.

I hope you are inspired, informed, and challenged to rethink the space outside your church walls!  

AND PLEASE...pass this on to anyone who might be interested.

I found out recently I won this year's Georgia Landscape Magazine Cover competition.  The competition was open to all CED students.  I'm honored to follow up last year's award-winning cover with this one, two very different styles.  Thanks to the GLM staff who selected my work and to Brad Davis and all those on the Jekyll Watercolor trip for the wonderful watercolor experience.

Well, after a long fought 6+ month battle, the latest issue of Georgia Landscape Magazine is complete and printed.

I'm grateful this team has produced this quality work and look forward to the continued momentum the magazine will bring to the CED and its students. I was lucky enough to work with a great team of people and I'm grateful for all their contributions.  Its an honor to share OUR work with the world.

An article I wrote about the file saving/sharing application, Dropbox, was recently published in the February 2012 issue of Landscape Architect and Specifier News.

The article focuses on the utility's ability to keep files in sync not only between your own devices, but also within a project team or corporate environment. I have been using Dropbox for many years and it is particularly helpful in keeping information circulating among all my MLA peers. 

Dropbox is showing its usefulness in big ways while I manage the Georgia Landscape Magazine layout team.  Copy editors are placing finalized copy and submitted graphics in article folders.  Those files are immediately available to the assigned designer. As edits are made or further graphics are submitted, the designer has direct access to those revisions.  My role as layout editor is simplified as I know what files are available and what files are needed.  Final spread layouts will be posted to the GLM dropbox folder this week, making the transfer of multi-MB InDesign documents and full-resolution graphics incredibly easy.
