Number one job a homeowner should not tackle themselves?
Electrical Repairs. Its way too dangerous! a DIY electrical job, if done wrong, can result in a shorts which in turn can result in a fire. Then all that money you saved can end up costing you a lot more. I'm not talking about changing a simple light fixture, but more internal wiring that would be buried inside of your walls.
What makes you tough?
Being Born & Raised in New York City just makes you tougher than the rest. New Yorkers are born tough skinned. The only way you’re going to know how you’ve made it is by climbing the ladder of life from the bottom. Just remember the saying "Be kind to everyone on the way up; you'll meet the same people on the way down" Be humble and honest, remember everyone is human.
Words to live by?
Love what you do for work and you'll never work a day in your life! If you get up every day and love what you do you will never feel like you are working! Remember to keep moving forward and you’re going to get there. If you give up, you will never get there. It may feel like a lifetime but you’ll get there. Remember Rome wasn't built in a day!
My Dad & God
What do you do on your days off?
If I could do anything I wanted on my day off it would be with my family and we would be in Capri, Italy for some great food, gelato and unbelievable surroundings! NOW THAT'S A DAY OFF!!
Who are your biggest influences?
My biggest influences are watching and reading about people that have built their empire from grinding in the streets! On my short list would be Jimmy Iovine, Dr. Dre, Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs & Ralph Lauren!!
What do you do?
General Contractor / Interior Designer / TV Personality. They call me the “Design Boss” for my very savvy No-Nonsense style. It’s important to have a lot of skills in this profession. I’m part time project manager, designer, and market insider. I understand that a lot of people have endless home renovation horror stories, I’m here to help reverse these stories. I guarantee that your vision is translated and that the work is done of the highest quality and that the expenses are as low as possible.

What are some of your interests?
I’m really interested in car racing & vacationing. Give me my helmet, racing suit and a race car and I’m ready to go. I help out with a charity called ECHO, Emergency Children's Help Organization which helps children in need of medical and emergencies. I’ve served on the executive board with the organization for over 5 year. Its a wonderful feeling helping children and their families and watching the organization grow. I built a figurative home with them.
