My main project has been leading the design of a NYC-based hospitality project, comprised of the full renovation of four hotel properties. Elements of this project include working with the clients in developing and refining brand aesthetic and content, designing custom furniture while developing prototypes with local workrooms, creating custom contract textiles/wallpaper/carpet, sourcing FF+E, drafting construction documents, as well as researching and analyzing successful local hotel brands. Additionally, I worked on multiple luxury residential projects including homes at 15 Central Park West, 150 Charles Street and 250 West 81st Street.
