As studio manager and project manager, I managed multiple projects in New York City and the Hamptons.

Recent works I've managed include a 13,000 SF new-build home in Bridgehampton and a 12,500 SF townhouse on the Upper East Side. I am currently managing a 13,000 SF double-wide townhouse renovation in the West Village, which included excavation, community board review, and a complete interior structural gut of a 150 year old set of townhomes.
