Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, 1996.
Scott Wunderle, Co-founder of TERRIGENOUS, graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (1992) and a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (1993). After graduation, he moved from Providence to Boston to work as an intern at Harvard University’s Arnold Arboretum and as a model maker for Martha Schwartz Inc. In 1996, Scott returned to Vermont to begin working in the landscape that had originally inspired him and spent three years as a laborer, draftsman, and foreman for Gordon Hayward Landscape Gardening and Design. In addition, he spent three years as a Zoning Administrator for the Town of Peru, Vermont, six years as a member of the Chester Planning Commission, and four years as the chairman of the Chester Development Review Board. While Scott's work is pivotal in the conceptual design phase of each project, he also establishes the project schedules, oversees the construction of the work and guides the strategic vision of the company. Scott is a licensed Landscape Architect in the State of Vermont.
In addition to working on studio projects, Scott enjoys spending time with his children, Tuckerman and Angelae, experimenting with stone on his property, experiencing Fine Arts, writing poetry, keeping up on current events, skiing in powder, and riding his Moto Guzzi motorcycle.
Patrick Jarvis joined TERRIGENOUS in 2007 after 11 years in the transportation and engineering industry. As a civil engineering technician, he worked on public and private projects, including sidewalks, bike paths, subdivisions, roads and bridges.
From these experiences, Patrick gained valuable engineering skills to approach a variety of challenges with solid design solutions. Patrick is skilled in AutoCAD and MicroStation, and is familiar with state and federal design standards from his experience with projects for Vermont Agency of Transportation and the US Army Corps of Engineers.
However, he knew he could never achieve true job fulfillment unless he could also step away from the desk and get his hands dirty working on the construction side of projects. Today, Patrick provides design and drafting support to allow our clients to see the visions of Scott's artistry on paper before they become reality. He's most happy when he can work with Scott on-site, and takes pride in the knowledge they are building beautiful landscapes that will be enjoyed by generations.
In his free time, he enjoys time with his wife, Sylvan, visiting with family, enjoying musical concerts, and exploring New England by boat, foot or jeep.
