Los Angeles, CA



I am a uniquely trained architect and interior designer with strong experience in Boutique Hospitality + Residential projects at varying scales.

I managed the redesign of the new Standard Hotel, East Village with Shawn Hausman, working directly with hotelier Andre Balazs and a highly skilled team of consultants in the renovation of the 145-key property. Following the opening of The Standard I acted as the Director of Architecture + Design for Assouline Publishing, working bilingually on various projects around the globe, to include the opening of a new store in Venice Italy.

In the spring of 2014 I joined Gachot Studios, participating at a senior level on various projects that include the Shinola Hotel in Detroit, the Shephard House in New York, Bocce restaurant in New York, the Diplomat Restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, Equinox Greenwich Avenue in New York, Rivertower Apartments in New York, a private residence in Amagansett New York, a complete renovation of a historic brownstone in Chelsea in New York, as well as several other private projects.

I am currently living in Los Angeles working on several high-end private residential projects in LA and New York as well as hospitality projects in Venice.
