Combining the care and personal touch of custom fabrication
with the foresight required of traditional design and planning
I started designing restaurants in the early 90s. Thanks to Peter Niemitz who hired me and inspired me. Then I moved to New York City to work for David Rockwell. With Nancy Mah we started our own studio and did many beautiful projects together. I could not stop designing. I was lucky enough to work with Adam Tihany, and then AvroKO, while I developed my own design practice.
I have been in Architecture and Design for 45 years. My first job in an architect’s office I was 15 years old. I put myself through college at the University of Michigan and Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.
Now I work from the Hudson Valley at my home studio. I use my woodshop to fabricate custom details for each project. And I split a lot of firewood.
