“Somewhere along the way, an artist who just wanted to share his gift with others ended up owning a very different kind of creative services company. I’d be lying if I told you that was the plan when I opened my first studio on Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago over 20 years ago. Since that time, we’ve had the unique pleasure of working with some of the most amazing clients who trust us to execute and manage inspired projects of uncompromising quality. As an Artist, Contractor and Design Professional, I’ve seen the design/build and underlying creative process play out from every conceivable angle. This unique combination of experiences allows me to coach our clients to create with confidence from concept to completion. All the while looking to collaboratively craft environments that reflect an appreciation for lifestyle-focused function, authentic personal style and one-of-a-kind finishing details.”
