Sandy has a drive for excellence and the energy and focus necessary to achieve it. He is thoughtful and articulate in expressing his ideas, and collaborative in his openness to the ideas of others. He values creativity and rewards it with support and enthusiasm. His knowledge of tropical plants, particularly those of the Caribbean basin is encyclopedic. His work on the propagation of native and indigenous plants of Grand Cayman is unique and ground breaking, making these plants available to the nursery industry for the first time.

Sandy’s vision and stewardship for Camana Bay has been extraordinary and his contributions will continue to reverberate and nurture the community for decades. As Charles Moore liked to say, “the care you put into buildings is giving back every day.” In Sandy’s case it is buildings, landscape, lightings and graphics; in short, the whole integrated and harmonious environment. Camana Bay could not have realized its potential without his central role, full of insight, passion and energy.
