As the Mirror Show Management design team grew, an expansion called for some design consideration. I was asked by the owners to come up with a design that showed off our design team in a creative environment, while keeping a diverse group of designers, all accustomed to having their own offices, happy in a new, open environment. The result was an airy, unique space with angled ceiling and large skylights, furniture by Herman Miller, and bright versions of MSM’s corporate colors decorating the walls. In the process of choosing sources and suppliers, I put together a Design Resource Library, which is still in use and growing years later.
My responsibilities on this project included:
- 3D Design and art direction
- Furniture, lighting and material sourcing
- Implementation of project from start to finish
- Creation and maintenance of Materials and Research Library

I enjoy designing and animating in 3D Studio Max and have a basic understanding of AutoCAD and other 3D programs. An interactive PDF provides some applications of this knowledge, from bringing to life another designer’s napkin-sketch idea to designing and implementing a 40’ x 60’ interior space in under 3 months, without the support of a design team. For access to this PDF, please contact me.

Mirror Show Management was one of three companies to bid on Widewaters’ RFP for a new 30’ x 40’ booth to replace their 15-year-old tradeshow properties. The real estate development and management company was looking to draw attendees at ReCon, a global deal-making venue for retail real estate, into an environment that was modeled after the type of quality construction for which Widewaters is known. Working together with an exhibit designer, I designed a booth around the juxtaposition of interior/exterior space, creating a courtyard area around reception that led into a more private, interior space for the conference rooms. Water fountains on either side reinforced the name of the brand and added to the courtyard effect. The client loved our proposal and hired MSM to design and build the final exhibit, which successfully debuted at ISCS 2008.

Completed as a freelance project, I worked directly with Cannon Industries, a contract manufacturing company based in Rochester, NY, to renovate a room at their headquarters. Designed and built within 3 months, the room showcased Cannon’s sheet-metal and custom weld fabrication capabilities through industry-specific displays, projections and graphics. Much of the design was intentionally created using materials and methods that Cannon could manufacture themselves, helping to keep the budget low and the project on-time. Cannon’s CEO loved the space so much that he moved his office to flank it, and uses part of it as his personal conference room.

I’m honored to have had my previous home featured in a blog called LushPad. The house is a 1950′s Cape Cod, so my minor collection of haphazard mid-century pieces fit well into the interior. One day, I’ll own a vintage Mustang from the same period and my design obsession of that era will be complete.
