As Managing Principal of TBG’s San Antonio office Elaine guides her team in designing compelling landscapes that are rooted in the ecology and unique environment of the Edwards Plateau region. She brings a sophisticated design perspective to each project that reflects her wide-ranging professional and academic experience. Her background includes design, project management and academic engagements at universities and firms spanning from Harvard to Texas to the Pacific Northwest. Elaine is experienced with managing projects through all phases of the development process, and she also has an aptitude for academia; she has taught at Trinity University and served as a guest critic at UT San Antonio.

Growing up on a ranch near Weimar, Texas, Elaine was fortunate to ride horses, celebrate family picnics at the property’s big pond, and explore creeks and wooded thickets looking for the best climbing trees. She cherishes the three-month period she lived in Istanbul and once was an extra in a blockbuster Bollywood movie, Namastey London, filmed on location in Mumbai.
