-IMI DESIGN BEGAN IN 2002 IN QUEENS, NYC,  IN  BUSINESS FOR 17 YEARS

CURRENTLY LOCATED IN UPSTATE NY. BACK IN THE LATE  70’S I VIEWED A SHOW ON PBS ABOUT FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT AND DECIDED ARCHITECTURE IS FOR ME. MY EARLIEST DRAWINGS WERE IN THE 80’S OF DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS LAYOUTS.

 

MY EDUCATION BEGAN IN A PRE-ENGINEERING PROGRAM IN HIGH SCHOOL, THIS WAS DRAWING BY HAND, LATER I WENT

TO LONG ISLAND FOR MY 5 YEAR DEGREE AND I WAS THE GENERATION THAT TRANSITIONED TO CAD “WHICH I SAID WILL NEVER

CATCH ON” FOLLOWING THIS WAS A YEAR OF STUDY ABROAD FOR MY MASTERS DEGREE 

 

AS A RESULT OF THIS I ACQUIRED A GREAT AMOUNT OF TRAVEL EXPERTISE IN EUROPE AND THE AMERICAS, WHICH BENEFITED MY 2 YEARS OF TEACHING AS AN ADJUNCT PROFESSOR. I WAS VERY FORTUNATE TO BE BROUGHT UP IN A FAMILY OF 3RD GENERATION FURNITURE MAKERS FROM

EASTERN EUROPE. GROWING UP MY FAMILY WORKED IN THE VLADIMIR KAGAN FURNITURE FACTORY, IT ALL

 CULMINATED FOR ME IN THE STANDARD HOTEL IN LOS ANGELES   WITH HIS LARGEST SOFA. 

 

SHORTLY AFTER THIS I WENT OUT ON MY OWN AND BECAME LICENSED IN NY AND CT.   MY PROJECTS ARE MOSTLY INTERIOR DESIGN, RESIDENTIAL,

CUSTOM FURNITURE AND ART. DURING MY INTERNSHIP ON LONG ISLAND PROJECTS INCLUDED HEALTH CLUBS, OFFICES, AFFORDABLE HOUSING, AND

AS-BUILT DRAWINGS, CONCLUDING WITH A PROPOSAL FOR NASSAU COUNTIES EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER WHERE UPON APPROVAL I LEFT THE FIRM 

AND FORMED “IMI” DESIGN, WHICH IS MY NICKNAME.  EVERY YEAR I DO ONE COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECT AND CHARITY ART AUCTION.

I AM GRATEFUL FOR YOU TO BE HERE, VIEW MY WORK AND LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT IS OUR FUTURE.
