Through 30+ years of experiences originating in architecture, his range has enabled him to bridge many disciplines by also being intuitive and resourceful in the development of products, environments or special projects.  As an interdisciplinary designer, artist and early adapter his approach stems from a poetic core and an inspirational focus of the future.  His studies of various design and cultural styles have lead to his ability to draw from everyday inspirational things to create evolutionary design.

      Featured in national and international publications for projects in New York, Miami, the Caribbean and Central America, which includes design awards and industry recognition for his custom furniture line.

Notably, awarded for his extensive community involvement and fundraising while supporting local artists and personally showcasing their art.  Always loving the challenge design brings, HGTV featured an episode in "Big style, Small spaces" which was followed by Oprah Magazine featuring the project space.  As an artist, CASA CLUB, the sister program in Central & South America had him design the sets for their international promo commercials two years in a row .

 

For two years he served as a board member for DIFFA and designed rooms for such notable organizations as the American Red Cross's designer Showhouse in Palm Beach and Al Capone's Showhouse in Palm Island.  Awarded first place for Most Original room by AD in Architectural Digest's World of Design were the judges described the room as, "Poetic, evoking beauty with a presence of time and scale".

Understandably, he has been a guest speaker on The New York Times "Times Talk" series discussing art, architecture and design.
