Cutting Edge Design

2007-2009

Co-Owner/Project Manager – Cutting Edge Design, Inc.

As QDevelopment’s scope of projects expanded to whole home automation and commercial A/V system installations the need for highly trained technical staff with a deep understanding of programming, low-voltage wiring, and construction became eminent. Since system integration was a niche skill set, the decision was made to not hire technical staff or contractors, but rather merge QDevelopment, Inc. with an already established business called Cutting Design, Inc. who had existing employees skilled in all the required disciplines. The two companies dovetailed perfectly together.

I could not be more delighted with the outcome. Often, the technical elements of a renovation become the most complicated and difficult. Interestingly, through your guidance and patience, this has been a very elegant process and simplified.
