We are a full-service design firm characterized by a holistic approach and contemporary sensibility. Our philosophy is driven by a cutting-edge result rooted from a meticulously planned and executed conception. Through the personalized work we provide, we create a culture for each client at every stage of their life. At GRADE, we approach each project with precision working intimately with clients to realize the most authentic expression of an aesthetic idea. For us, design is more than the arrangement of formal elements. It’s the recognition of a uniquely articulated experience. Informed by practice and innovative by nature, GRADE is as curious about the possibilities of design as we are well-versed in it, and we are always pushing the boundaries of our trade. We are GRADE.
I draw inspiration not just from the projects we do, but from our clients themselves.
My work at GRADE is informed by my experience designing luxury retail and residential spaces both domestically and internationally for clients including Tiffany & Co., Victoria’s Secret and DKNY.
It all begins with listening to a client and assessing their needs. I love to cultivate enduring relationships with our clients that result in highly personal and bespoke work.
I have taught at Columbia University, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and currently teach a design studio at Parsons School of Design, where in 2002 I met my fellow GRADE partner Edward Yedid.
Design is about creating a lifestyle, and so we approach every aspect of a project from a holistic perspective.
I've been a partner at GRADE since 2004. Prior, I worked with the notable interior designer Noel Jeffrey and have participated in various interiors events.
I have an innate desire to transform spaces into memorable and personalized environments, be it an expansive Tribeca loft or a ground-breaking hotel experience concept.
At GRADE, we execute every project with a highly attuned level of style and detail.
