At his core, Karl has always been a creator and a doer. He began his lifelong passion for creativity in St. Louis, home of MOBOT, one of the most exceptional botanical gardens in the world. He then moved to New York where he honed his artistic skills at New York University, while studying studio art. After his studies, Karl journeyed out west to Portland, where he is now Principal and Co-Owner at Green Gables Design & Restoration.
