Paul Harris Bio

I completed my undergraduate work in industrial design at the University of Cincinnati and my graduate degree at Harvard.  Prior to moving to California, I lived and worked in Japan and Holland for over 5 years.  My life and experiences overseas had a profound impact on me and are reflected in my work- through my mindful approach and careful attention to detail and beauty.

I established Imagine Sonoma Landscape Architects, Inc. in Sonoma in 1995 and moved the business to Berkeley in 2008.
