I am an architectural designer with over 20 years of diverse, professional experience both in New York and Los Angeles. A strong leader, independent thinker; I enjoy taking charge of a project and seeing it through from concept to completion while making sure they are delivered on time and on budget. I have extensive experience in both design & construction disciplines; working diligently to meld the ideal with real-world limitations, producing projects that delight clients and the public at large. The main thrust of my work experience has been Modern Residential, Upscale Boutiques, High-end Showrooms, Corporate Tenant Improvements and Movie Theater Multiplex Development; all requiring meticulous detailing and impeccable follow-through.
