After graduating from the University of Georgia with a degree in landscape architecture, Andrew worked as an associate with Macknally Land Design in Birmingham, Alabama. For six years, he collaborated on a broad spectrum of urban projects ranging from civic spaces and parks, to residential and commercial development. During these years, Andrew also had the opportunity to participate in planning projects with Engineering Ministries International (eMi). Along with other professional volunteers, he served as landscape architect on a number of hospital and campus projects in Mexico, Honduras and other parts of Latin America.
In 2014, Andrew joined Richter Landscape Company in an effort to further develop their design-build service. Soon afterwards, plans to open a new design division of the company were made, and in 2016 Cahaba Design Studio was birthed.
As a native of Savannah, Georgia, Andrew moved to Birmingham in 2008 and has grown to love the Alabama land and its community. His passion for native landscapes and wildlife continually drives his designs in an effort to better integrate people and their natural environment. When not working in the studio, Andrew enjoys “farming” on his half acre lot, traditional archery, and complaining to his wife about the rampant use of foreign plants in America.
