Jamie lives in Monkton Vermont and has been dedicated to dry stone masonry for over a decade. He enjoys creating structures and spaces that compliment and blend with their surroundings. He has a B.A. in Environmental Studies and Geography from The University of Vermont and has traveled extensively.
He currently holds an Intermediate Level of Certification with The Dry Stone Wallers Association of Great Britian (DSWA). This is the most widely recognized and accepted training scheme for dry stone wallers in the world. Levels of certification are achieved through rigorous timed tests where participants are graded on sound construction principals of the age old tradition. It's a valuable process not only for training wallers but also for assuring prospective clients and designers that the level of work is of the highest standard. He is a certified DSWA walling instructor and occasionally leads workshops at The Stone Trust and is a member of the Vermont Nursery and Landscape Association. Jamie is fully insured.
