After working for various developers in the early 80’s as an in-house architect supervising large construction projects, including mid-rise condominiums and the reconstruction of a large turn of the century estate, Jim established his own practice in 1985. From his original office in Island Park, Jim worked on custom residential projects, night clubs, car and boat dealerships, restaurants and food stores, hotel lobbies, churches, and condominiums. In 1989 the office moved into a converted sail loft on the waterfront in Freeport and stayed there for 15 years. Designing the first Infiniti car dealership on Long Island, the firm went on to design additional dealerships for Infiniti, Ford, BMW and Suzuki. Boat dealerships were designed and built for Wellcraft, Hatteras and Viking. Many custom restaurants were completed, design/build from Montauk to Manhattan. Prior to hurricane Irene, the office was moved to the central business district of Nassau County in Garden City. After the storms, generator installations became popular and were designed for custom residences, airplane hangars at Republic Airport and department stores.
