Dave Marciniak

I started in the industry in high school and then moved to San Diego which was the source of two revelations. I worked for a firm doing amazing estates on the coast learning a little about everything from masonry to irrigation to electrical. I later ran the grounds crew for the Salk Institute in La Jolla, CA, which is where I discovered how amazing modern architecture can be. I later moved to Virginia and worked for an amazing landscape design-build firm for three years before hanging out a shingle and starting my own firm.
