I was born and raised in Martigny, Switzerland and my youthful passions include mountain climbing, and skiing. In college, I studied languages and later sculpture at the Beaux Arts in Paris. I later met my wife Janet in Paris, who had an adjoining art studio. In 1980, we moved back to the United States to raise our family of 3 children. Upon arriving in New York, I moved into the field of architectural design and building restoration. It has been an inspiring project to transform A Sunset Chateau over the years. We hope that you will appreciate the fruit of our labors.
