A native Californian and Long Beach State University graduate. After a 25-year period as a performing artist and leader on the competitive dance circuit, David found his passion in the outdoor harmonics of earth, plant, water, and stone. For years he has been adding his sense of composition to landscapes, and the development of the California Native aesthetic.
"Kathy and David include in their work a profound respect for the biological richness of native California, and an appreciation of how the plants would grow in a wild environment. The landscaping done by We've Gone Native will have a lasting a fine impact on our home, our neighborhood, on conservation of water, and the small animals that benefit from finding their host plants in profusion.

"Kathy and David's design and execution exceeded my expectations- I thought a California Native Garden would be a xeriscape full of rocks, succulents and grasses.; what I got was a mix of vibrant blood and bushes/trees of different textures!"
