2009-2013  |  Principal  |  IOS Design

IOS Design consulted with architects and retailers focusing in-depth experience using BIM to solve their problems.  Through this process I gained expertise effectively marketing, networking and managing a business.  Project highlights include:

  • The Counter location at the historic Roosevelt building in downtown Los Angeles required an upgrade in concept and finishes to their typical prototype.  I worked directly with The Counter to design this new flagship and maximize the revenue possibilities in this location.  While preserving reference to The Counter’s typical branding we brought in bold new furniture, millwork, colors and finishes adding tremendous appeal to the location.

Introduction to project management included producing the first Kate Spade BIM prototype.  This document became the template for all projects in our office do to its efficiency and ease of use.  Building a lasting relationship with Kate Spade was easy after the Whalers Village Lahaina, HI prototype went through city review with no flags, usually a three to six month review timetable!
