Doug received a BSLA in landscape architecture from Rutgers University in 1990 and MA in landscape architecture from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2010. As an undergraduate he spent a summer studying Urbino, a medieval hill town in the Marche region of Italy and nine months in the Andalucía region of Spain, studying Islamic gardens and landscapes.
Doug worked with Taliesin Preservation, Inc. for seven years, working on and cultural and natural resource preservation and planning for the National Historic Landmark Taliesin Estate. While with Quinn Evans Architects, Doug assisted in the development of plans for several National Park Service properties.
Doug’s primary role in the Department of Landscape Architecture is as an instructor. He currently teaches LA201: Introductory Landscape Design Studio. He also co-teaches LA250: Survey of Landscape Architecture, LA262: Landscape Inventory and Analysis, and LA462: Regional Design.
Doug’s interest in landscape architectural design is broad and spans a range of project types and scales. One of his focuses, however, has been the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the design, planning, and management of the landscape.
