Lorin grew up in Chicago. At the first opportunity, he fled the Midwest for the mountains of Colorado, where he studied environmental geology at Colorado College. Following a short hiatus living and working in Costa Rica, Lorin graduated, spent a couple of years working at a sustainable farming operation, and ultimately relocated to Fort Collins in 1999.
He entered the industry as a local nursery employee, and soon founded Waterwise Land and Waterscapes to create well thought-out landscapes and install them utilizing the best possible means while improving the quality of the built environments we dwell in everyday. Since its inception in 2001, a history of meaningful relationships, original designs, and quality projects has led to consistent growth and new opportunities.
On a daily basis, he strives to do right by his family, friends, co-workers, clients and the environment. It’s a big list and it’s a work in progress, but it’s a good project.
