About 

I am an architectural consultant & project manager with a strong background in modernist and classic design. Currently overseeing meticulous architectural restorations of historic recognition.

I am highly skilled in perfecting complex specifications, expert at employing unique methods of fabrication, intuitively gifted in value engineering and exceptionally proficient in the procurement and sales of fine architectural materials--from rendering to installation. If a project requires an unavailable component, I have the skill set & sources to fabricate the particular material(s) to meet specifications. 

My diverse background & broad range of skills also allows me to approach international manufacturers directly to create custom materials to meet project specifications. 

I am peerless at finding what cannot be found. Many of my close friends are former clients.
