As a young golfer, Bill developed an early appreciation for the natural beauty of the courses he played. Over time, his love of nature, combined with interests in architecture, history and travel, deeply influenced Bill’s decision to pursue a career in landscape architecture. After earning his degree at The University of Georgia, he apprenticed under the late Dan Franklin, whose legendary talent and persona live on in the Atlanta community today. Many of Bill’s early gardens were crafted for residences designed by Harrison Design, and thus began his long-standing relationship with the company.
Realizing that landscape architecture is as much a science as it is an art, Bill honed his technical skills at an engineering firm focused on highly complex commercial and recreational master planning projects. In 2007, Bill’s successful history of working with Harrison Design and his broad design background made him a natural choice to lead the firm’s newly created studio. Since that time, he has created residential gardens, public parks and commercial and resort master plans for clients as far away as Asia and Africa.
