New Homes  –  Historic Renovations  –  Remodeling  –  Consultations

I have been building new homes and restoring old structures in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York for 35 years. My team and I approach projects large and small with a commitment to quality, integrity, attention to detail, and open communications.  I work in New York City where I have restored brownstones, and developed residential and commercial properties. My colleagues and clients know me as a tenacious creative problem solver, proud of my ability to work with all kinds of people, and determined to get the job done on schedule.

My New York City projects include:

  • Complete gutting and restoration of a townhouse in Greenwich Village featured in the New York Times
  • Complete gutting and restoration of a townhouse in Harlem

  • Construction of  Murray’s Cheese Shop in Grand Central Station
  • Complete gutting and restoration of full-floor 4,000-sq-ft residential co-op
