At the turn of the century, Vincent was working at a wholesale nursery that inspired his career of designing with plants. He followed this interest to college and graduated from the S.U.N.Y. School of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, NY with a degree in Landscape Architecture in 2007. Prior to working at Town & Gardens, Vincent worked for a design-build company in Tampa, FL as an installer, project manager, designer, and sales team member. Vincent also worked for the NYS Dept. of Transportation to plant up highways and provide better, safer infrastructure for pedestrians and bicyclists.
