projects / management / Obscura Digital – Madison Square Garden Company

- Cutting Teeth -

I pursued the 27,000ft2 renovation of Pier 1 & transformation of Pier 70 as acting general contractor. Working under an “owner’s representative” model of construction, we bid and contracted directly with 38 subcontractors/vendors to update the 80’s cubicle farm into a cutting edge technology studio. Working simultaneously with the SF Port, architects, creative services, IT, executives, producers, and internal fabricators made the road to a company move in 2 days smooth and exciting reality.

projects / hospitality / Port Bar

- Kick-Starting the OSO Journey -

The design inspiration for this roof came from the terrazzo floors of the iconic Paramount Theater. The herringbone design provides a sleek and uncomplicated feel to the dynamic pitch of the roof sections.

Salvaged cedar, plexiglass, polycarbonate & container steel to support an Oakland queer space struggling during the COVID lockdowns. Client’s extreme budget due to pandemic restrictions was the perfect opportunity to polish some refuse into an eye-catching gathering space to treat the regulars and draw in new patrons. LEDs, container steel, and the lines of deck wood retains continuity with interior aesthetic.

projects / furniture / Gold Vibe

- Reclaim : Repose -

Reclaimed wood & glitter, 2022

Created for California’s premier kombucha brewery, tap room, and events center. These versatile double-decker benches honor the gold country aesthetic and inspire with their modern designs using 100% reclaimed wood.

projects / hospitality / Parklets

- Securing Sacred Spaces -

Early pandemic I volunteered with the Oakland Indie Alliance to help small businesses design and build parklets across Oakland to ensure the fabric of the Town remained tight.

Commitment now lies with introducing bold designs to ensure permanence in function & aesthetics for our beautiful city.
