The architecture and interiors side of the studio works in a wide range of residential and commercial projects including renovation, interiors and new construction, merging eco design with the other design needs of each project. Fire & Water is his lighting company initially created to produce custom designs for clients over fifteen years ago and since grown to include several lines of award-winning light fixtures.
