After college, he joined Zen Associates in Woburn, Massachusetts and trained under a renowned landscape architect. After 5 years, he was offered the position as Grounds Manager at Phillips Academy in Andover. This coveted position allowed him to work within an Olmsted-designed landscape and to bring much of its original vision back.
