INNOVATION IN HOME & VIDEO
Known as one of the most sought after audio-visual experts and system integrators on many large scale luxury projects in New York City and select markets in the United States, he has the innate ability to think on both sides of the field – be it on the architectural and design side (from his years on the front lines as an owner’s representative) to the technical side (pulling from his earlier days as an editor and cameraman for PBS and CNN). His signature is creating simple to use technology that layers over the original architectural and design intent. These complex and powerful systems give the user the ability to control seamlessly and simply.
Technology is a key component in design which most designers often forget about. Richard is my “go-to” for any project that involves audio, video and innovative technology. Below is a project he completed for me that involved mounting a TV on a column wall. He’s able to execute quickly and work around any situation without compromising my design aesthetics.
He’s also is a three-time recipient of the Crestron Integration Award in 2007, 2009 and 2012. In addition, Richard has been named a top CE Pro 100 Integrator and led a round table groups in Los Angeles in 2009, Miami in 2011 and most recently in Houston. In 2012 Performance Imaging was named a winner at the CE Pro 100 Summit for Best Practice Awards. PI was honored for creating and implementing outstanding business processes and was selected by a panel of judges, including CE Pro editors and industry experts.
Richard is a CEDIA Registered Outreach Instructor and guest speaker to architectural firms through AIA accredited courses. Finally, he is often engaged as a consultant offering recommendations and provides direction of integrated technologies while being sensitive to the overall look, feel and performance of the project.
It’s always fun sharing my home with guest. I think my home looks different then my usual design projects because it’s more personal. My loft consists of framed artwork and a mixture of furniture that I picked up while traveling the globe. It’s a place where the ceiling and white walls blend together capturing the best sunsets that the westside has to offer. I can’t wait to see everyone enjoying my home and having a few cocktails after this amazing seminar on July 22nd – July 23rd. Limited availability, REGISTER TODAY!

PPG 2016 Global Color Trends: Automotive, Architectural, Aerospace & Consumer Electronics
Each January, PPG’s global color stylists meet to discuss the color trends for the upcoming year. More than 25 color representatives from 8 different countries and from PPG’s business units: automotive, architectural, consumer electronics, aerospace and industrial discuss what colors are forecasted for each region and product. Despite our different markets and geographies, many of the sentiments and forecasts are quite similar. We see consumer electronics influencing the car and plane industries, and the interior styling of cars influencing the hotel architectural market. It is an advantage to have this insider’s look at all these important consumer drivers and to provide these trends to PPG’s customers. We influence trends as much as trends influence us. There is a reason why we like certain colors at certain times in our lives and with what’s happening in society. Applying these societal and demographic filters provide a color palette that will connect with customers in a meaningful way and sell product.
