Currently I am self-employed. I worked in New York for Barteluce Architects & Assoc. from 2003 - 2011, commuting to NY from Baltimore on a weekly basis. I was VP Creative Director and headed up a design staff of 16. I have worked on all scales/budgets of retail projects, including shopping centers and retail stores. The past five years I was the lead designer and Creative Director on all the luxury retail stores in the Wynn Resort Las Vegas and several in Wynn Macau. I worked closely with Steve Wynn and Roger Thomas, Steve Wynn's Exec. VP Wynn Design & Development in the planning and design of all the 15 projects there. I have also worked closely with the Simon Group in developing the original concepts for Caesar's Forum Las Vegas. Currently, I am working on a couple of luxury stores in Baltimore's new Four Season's Hotel, Boyds Dept. Store, Philadelphia and a new restaurant in Cordish's  Power Plant Live project in Baltimore.
