What i like most about this project of introducing people's home is the variety of people i meet in the process. Today, we are peeking into what i would call the quintessential downtown life of the busy new yorker.
Wes is a young investor living in a fairly new building. But his apartment somehow reflects the feel of a classic New York interior. He really used the space cleverly and created a home that is uncluttered, comfortable and simple. The stark winter light outside made the place extra cozy that morning.
As the nature of his profession always calls, Wesley had to work that day and i swifted out as fast as i had swifted in, leaving behind a sense of wonder on how it would be for me to live his kind of life.

What are the 3 fundamental elements in your daily / weekly routine?
I travel quite a bit for both work and fun, so i'm constantly in a state of packing and/or unpacking. The apartment is actually laid out to facilitate that which is something i got some help putting into place last year. When i'm in town i try to get out to Brooklyn at least once a week. I rent a workspace in a converted industrial building near the Brooklyn navy yards which is super convenient to bike to from here.
Tell us about your current project
I'm on the board of a great local non profit called Hester Street Collaborative. the group does incredible programing at the intersection of community design, education and public spaces. I'm working with them to develop a marketing plan to get the word out about HSC's mission to the nyc design community. My background is in finance so we're all learning together.
