MEET THE DESIGN TEAM
Tom comes from a family of residential builders and spent his early life building and remodeling homes with his family. He has worked nation-wide designing everything from comfy beach homes to urban high-end projects in both the residential and commercial spaces. For the past six years, ZDesign, Tom’s company, has become the top interior design firm the Buffalo NY Market.
Tom’s personal style is always present in his projects, whether he is designing an oceanfront beach home, a 150-year-old row house, or a high rise ultra modern condo. Bringing the interior and exterior together, large open concept entertaining areas, and cozy intimate spaces bring Tom’s projects to another level of design.
Most well know for playing “Laura Spencer” on General Hospital, Genie was the better half of the “Laura and Luke” couple whose wedding pulled nearly 30 million viewers to daytime television. Adorable, spunky and a recent empty nester, Genie has always had a passion for design. When she’s not acting, she’s decorating and redesigning every home she and her family have shared.
Her passion for design led her to Maine where she opened a retail home accessory business specializing in unique, one-of a kind antiques and items that would make any home pop. She and Tom share the philosophy that every home should be designed with the functionality and needs of the individuals who will live in and will love the space.
