Los Angeles CA, USA



I am an architectural consultant & project manager with a strong backround in modernist and classic design. I am highly skilled in perfecting complex specifications, expert at employing unique methods of fabrication, intuitively gifted in the discernment of value engineering, 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 detailed background & broad range 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.
