Born and raised in Buffalo, New York and schooled at the State University of New York at Buffalo, I bring extensive design, project management and marketing experience.  My strengths are in coordinating numerous projects simultaneously with superb accuracy.  I have managed numerous residential projects and several commercial projects, from initial conception and design to completion.  I have successfully worked with developers, architects, contractors, interior designers and home owners, and truly enjoy the design-build process.  I pride myself on the highest standards of workmanship, integrity and customer service.  I am hard working, self-starting, industrious and extremely detailed oriented.
