What do you love most about construction and working in the renovation space?
I think it’s great to capture someone’s ideas and bring them to life. Also, the joy customers have after the project is completed—when they are satisfied, it’s really rewarding.
What do you want all of your clients to know when they start a project?
They have nothing to worry about. We’ll take care of everything from A-to-Z.
What is your favorite project that you’ve done?
Actually, our first Sweeten project. Our client was very easygoing. He shared his vision and then let us work.
Describe your ideal client?
Trusting! They trust us, our expertise, our craftsmanship—pretty much everything about us.
If you couldn’t be a contractor what would you be doing and why?
I am actually a chemical engineer. I’d be working back in pharma because I left that to work with my dad and to take over the company. This is really my dad’s company, but we’re partners.
What is your secret to make sure a project is wrapped up successfully?
Scheduling is the number one thing. Making sure subcontractors all align properly, they’re on time and trustworthy. My subcontractors are very reliable.
What is your favorite New York City borough?
I’m from Queens, so let’s go with Queens.
What is your favorite New York restaurant?
There is a really good brick oven pizza in Brooklyn. It’s called Campañas, it is right by the Verrazano bridge in Bay Ridge.
