About Us
An Architect By Training
While I've been doing marble and granite fabricating for more than 26 years, I didn't always plan to go into this business. I went to college to study architecture. To earn money each semester, I worked for a marble company, doing drafting and estimating.

I found that I loved reading plans, interacting with people, designing, and working with stone. So, after I received a B.S. degree in Architecture, I continued working for a marble company in Great Neck, NY, on Long Island.

Eight years later, I bought Ital Marble, an existing business, also on Long Island.

As a rule, I'm a very laid-back guy and easy to work with. I'm proud that most of our staff members have been with us since we opened our doors. But I'm always straight with customers, telling them what they need to know to make the best decisions, rather than saying what they may prefer to hear.

For example, I advise against using marble for kitchen countertops. Marble is softer than granite and can easily be damaged by acids such as orange juice or vinegar. It also needs significant ongoing maintenance. If a customer insists on having marble, I make sure that he or she understands all the potential issues that may arise.

We're fortunate to have earned the loyalty of our customers. My hope is that we have the opportunity to earn your loyalty, too.
