Tracy Sharpe began working with Green Life Studios in March 2011. As lead construction officer, Tracy has over 30 years of experience in the San Diego area and is personally involved with every landscape he installs. A general contractor since 1989, Tracy spent his early years installing landscapes with his brother-in-law on government contracts, mostly on military bases such Norton Air Force Base in San Bernardino, the Naval Base at Point Loma and the Marine Corps Base at Camp Pendleton, keeping up with their stringent standards. Five years later, he pursued his general contractor's license and has been building landscapes, home additions and kitchen remodels ever since. Tracy enjoys working outdoors the most. He excels in creating outdoor rooms -- the pavers, the walls, the carpentry. Clients appreciate Tracy's attention to detail, friendliness, prorblem solving and flexibilty. Tracy's utmost care in leaving job sites clean and orderly at the end of each day make his crew a welcome and trusted presence on any home project.
Alan W. Parkman joined Green Life Studios as Designer and Construction Officer in June 2009. He brings to Green Life Studios 15 years of building construction, maintenance and rehabilitation, plus 10 years experience in landscape design and construction. As a municipal planner for ten years, Alan served the California cities of Visalia, Concord, Orinda and Manteca. While the senior associate planner for the City of Orinda, Alan also served on several of Contra Costa Clean Water Program's committees in charge of developing and implementing California's stormwater pollution standards. Alan holds a Bachelor's degree in Landscape Architecture from UC Davis, is an expert in Edible Landscapes, and served in 2011 as Vice President of Resource Management for the San Diego Chapter of California Landscape Contractors Association.
Alan started gardening with his grandmother, learning from her since the age of 10 how to grow vegetables, which plants could be eaten in the wild and used for medicine. Self taught in permaculture, Alan grew organic fruits and vegetables for his family, testing many permaculture practices in his own garden. A native of San Diego, Alan now oversees his fathers citrus and avocado orchard in Fallbrook.
