I’ve always been told that when you follow your passion it will lead to a joyous life.  With my love of the natural world and a keen fascination with bringing it to where people live, I’m blessed to have found great joy in landscape architecture. 

Growing up with a father who was an interior designer fostered my interest in the built environment and what could be done when you give your imagination room to play.  How we choose to live, where we live, and how we manipulate the physical world to provide comfort and inspire happiness are fascinating to me. 

Since the early 1980s, I have been designing landscapes for custom homes in Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Rancho Palos Verdes, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach and various other communities.  In 1994 I broadened my project list to include public commissions such as retail centers, churches, synagogues, and senior care facilities.  Zucker Design Associates has also expanded its geographical reach, now featuring projects in New York, Las Vegas, Seattle, Jakarta, Indonesia and Singapore.
