His work has ranged from individual and batch production furniture to residential and large scale commercial projects, and has been recognized with a variety of awards including an AIA National Honor Award for Interior Architecture, an AIA/NYC Honor Award for Interior Architecture, and an Architectural Record Annual Record House Award. He was honored as one the 1995 “Young Architects” in the annual competition sponsored by The Architectural League of New York.
