About

Vice President and Creative Director at The Phillips Collection, working directly with manufacturers in Southeast Asia, Mexico, and Central and South America to develop high end furniture and accessories with a warm, contemporary touch. A background in industrial design with a focus on 3D computer modeling has allowed me to realize designs quickly and efficiently. Working directly with our sales team of over 50 reps has given me insight into what is salable; visiting our manufacturing resources around the world teaches me what is possible; being on the showroom floor allows me to see what is practical. Keeping these things in mind is the key to our company's success in this ever-evolving industry.
