The blend of artistic aptitude and an unparalleled attention to detail allow Tom to visualize his projects and flawlessly execute the myriad of details in the design-build process.
With 25 years of experience as a docent at the National Gallery of Art, he sees the process as an artistic expression, striving to reveal each client’s unique aesthetics in every project. As a third generation Washingtonian, Tom intimately knows the local architecture and neighborhoods, giving him the ability to seamlessly blend old form with new to accommodate not only his clients’ aesthetics but also their lifestyles.
Most of all, he enjoys the journey. “Although it’s very gratifying to see a project start with a vision and end in a tangible space, what I really love are the relationships formed along the way. The relationships with my clients give my projects meaning,” according to Tom.
When not working, running in the park, or lecturing at the National Gallery, Tom finds solace sitting on his porch, reading the New York Times with his wife, 4 children, and Bernese Mountain dog, Murphy. Tom is a CKD, Certified Kitchen Designer from the National Kitchen and Bath Association.
