He is known for his designs of high-end custom homes throughout Silicon Valley and Northern California.

The property is on a gentle slope dotted with mature oak and pepper trees, and already includes four water service connections with set meters. Retaining walls and perimeter fencing are also already in place.
Bay Ridge’s exclusive location high above sea level at about 1,100 feet elevation gives the home sites the opportunity to take advantage of some fabulous views of the Monterey Bay from Mount Toro, the Salinas Valley, Carmel Valley, the Santa Lucia Mountains and several golf courses.
The property is quiet and secluded, but close to so many amenities including the Monterey Airport, fine dining, cafes, boutiques, golf and outdoor recreation including numerous golf courses, the Nicklaus Club-Monterey (a course designed by Jack Nicklaus), the Laguna Seca Golf Ranch, Pebble Beach, the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, mountain biking trails, Fort Ord National Monument and, of course, the beaches.
