About 

I am an interior designer who has experience in commercial and high-end residential interiors.  In commercial interiors I have drafted and negotiated contracts, specified office furnishings, devised color schemes, created presentation boards and developed furniture budgets.  I have worked on the renovation of new offices for a law firm, an investment firm, a mutual fund company, an LA-based media agency and a Soho-based "Sillicon Alley" internet start-up.  I have also worked on test fitting and programming the renovation of the existing offices for the IT department of an insurance company and in renovating the corridors and pantry in the NY offices of a European television network. In residential interiors, I am experienced at taking site measurements, digitally and hand drafting plans and elevations, space planning and furniture layouts.  Not only have I managed projects and worked closely with the residential design principal on specifying interior architectural details, flooring, wall coverings, furnishings, soft and hard materials, and color schemes, but I also have made solo presentations to clients, obtained estimates from contractors and workrooms and worked on-site during installations.  Residential projects have included a Forest Hills, NY home, a senior residence clubhouse lobby, Hamptons new construction and the official residence of a college president.  I have also assisted with show houses, including the Kips Bay show house in 2011 and on the 2012 Morristown and Saddle River showhouses in New Jersey.   I am familiar with commercial systems furniture and sources for carpet, stone, vinyl flooring, fabrics, ancillary and residential furniture and antiques and excel at sourcing unique pieces.  I enjoy client interaction and collaborating with consultants, property managers, sales reps, vendors and craftspeople.  I am comfortable organizing and processing complex projects that involve a lot of moving parts and details.    I served on the board of directors of Manitoga/Russel Wright Design Center as its Treasurer, and am currently on the board's Finance Committee. I have a personal interest in freehand drawing, watercolor painting, mid-century modern design and health care and evidence-based design research.
