The purpose of this blog is to show projects completed in my home consisting of both remodeling work and organizational and design changes. I love sharing and exchanging ideas so welcome your comments and questions.

I worked for over 20 years in the commercial real estate business with experience in leasing management, tenant representation and construction management. I have worked for large international firms and local small businesses with a focus on Class A office buildings. I have also worked smaller markets with Class B office and retail properties as well.
