A graduate of the proverbial school of hard knocks, Troy found his calling when he brazenly walked into MGM’s corporate headquarters, and walked back out with a job as an art consultant. Attributing his passion for accessorizing and “knowing where things should go” to growing up in the furniture business, Troy has won the hearts of countless clients with his happy-go-lucky but spot-on art advisory services. He currently lectures at UCLA Extension, sharing tips with interior design students on how to select art, how to identify clients’ artistic leanings, and how to use art as a foundation for an overall interior design plan.We look forward to working with you on your next project.
