As the owner of Accent Building Co./Accent Kitchens, I hold a  Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Rhode Island Business  School with a major in Production Management. I started in the  construction trades by paying my way through college working as a  carpenter’s helper, cabinetmaker, furniture builder and mason’s laborer.  Since then I have held many prominent construction positions.

•    CAD Draftsman – The Kagan Company Architects •    Clerk Of The Works – New Haven Housing Authority ($21M renovation project) •    Project Manager – High profile commercial construction company •    Construction Administrator – Fletcher Thompson Architects •    Professional Construction Consultant  - Several projects in excess of $33M (Public and Private commercial projects) •    General Contractor/Project Manager/Owner- Over 15 years working on Residential and commercial construction projects

I started and grew my general building construction and  remodeling business into a successful company handling a multitude of  projects. Some notable projects include:

•    A 40 acre custom home subdivision •    33,000 sq. ft. business park development •    Finish millwork for a historic restoration project at Weslyan University •    Framing for a new science building at Kingswood-Oxford prep school •    Framing for several apartment and condominium projects •    Rough and finish carpentry for several restaurants – Outback, Chili’s, Crispy Cream Donuts, On the Boarder and more. •    Hilton Garden Inn and Studio Plus Hotels, framing and cabinetry •    Multiple Dental and Business Office fit-ups, various schools and government projects •    Multiple custom homes •    Hundreds of kitchen and remodeling projects •    Several Real Estate ventures and property flips

With over 25 years of experience in the industry, all projects  are produced with a commitment to exceptional design, quality and style  while taking advantage of the latest improvements in building products  and technology. I also enjoy embracing an opportunity to add the beauty  and benefits of reclaimed and repurposed materials to projects.

Design Style and Creativity

 We are passionate about helping you tell your story.  Good design is  functional and intentional, but it can also be stylish, playful, unexpected, and  innovative.  Our designs are all of these, and specifically focused on  communicating your narrative.  We  understand and respect tradition, but we’re future-focused and driven  to explore new ways of designing and building.  We’re not afraid to take  risks, and that means your space will be striking, interesting and  totally unique to you.
