Ed is a Licensed Landscape Architect and has worked on many master planned community projects that incorporated varied interactive recreational elements. Ed graduated from California Polytechnic University at San Luis Obispo in Landscape Architecture and Planning, and has enjoyed over 38 years of working with key professionals and clients in the public and private sectors. Originally working with city staff on the design and implementation of the Vista Hermosa Park facilities, Courtney’s SandCastle was a natural transition to be able to work with the CSC Founders to help make the universally accessible playground and sensory garden a reality. Ed continues to provide landscape architectural consulting services of all types and sizes. One of Ed’s goals is to assist the Foundation in broadening the reach of the ideas and experiences now available at Courtney’s SandCastle to other facilities wherever possible.
