  • Company Info

    EMI Design was formed in 2009 after working full time at EDAW/AECOM for 19 years. My title is owner with a partnership with my wife, Soraya.

    I currently am working on projects across the USA, starting with California. My career portfolio includes projects within multiple states as well as projects overseas.

    With my landscape architect background I understand our western region plant and related water-use classifications for compliance with the current California Water Efficiency Landscape Ordinance. All new irrigation system designs and related ‘problem solving’ are approached with finding solutions that meet the needs of the plant material in order to provide optimum health and vigor.

    New irrigation designs include state-of-the art equipment technology for weather-driven ‘smart’ controllers, dripline emitter systems, fertilizer injection systems, high-efficient nozzles, deep watering tree bubbler systems, and on-structure planting solutions including container planter pots.
