It is always a privilege to work with other professionals . Some of those collaborations engaged my skills to produce details and construction drawings, others involved finding solutions to spatial organization, or the design and specifications for custom furniture and surfacing. A number of those projects were award winning and published projects, while some required anonymity for celebrity privacy. Residences, retail, corporate and even medical facilities are in the mix. Whether the Belgian Consulate office, Goldman Sachs partner offices or stores on Madison Ave. each project was memorable for the integrated teamwork and everything learned through the process.
