Leyden Lewis, Brooklyn, NY, US, Junior Designer
I joined the Leyden Lewis studio as an intern, and soon demonstrated a talent for coordinating on-site installations. I have assisted the principle designer, Mr. Leyden Lewis, during his appearance on HGTV's "Showhouse Showdown," and eventually earned the role of junior designer. I work directly with Mr. Lewis on a variety of ambitious residential and commercial projects, and contribute to all aspects of design from inception to finished installation. I have a special fascination with the language of materials, and I relish the opportunity to use new materials as an antidote to conventional design solutions. Whether employing my knowledge of innovative materials, space layouts and contemporary furniture, creating design intent drawings, or exercising my administrative talents and attention to detail, I have valued my time at the studio. Experience also includes, 3-dimensional renderings, construction documents and working on the business end of the studio producing proposals, invoices and construction schedules.
