    Interior Architect, Aishah Coleman

    in Design

    Interior Architect, Aishah Coleman


    Growing up in the Bronx in the 1970’s, Aishah Coleman was always struck by the amount of abandoned buildings around the borough. Even at a young age, Aishah began to dream of studying Architecture to help rebuild her neighborhood. By the time she grew up and got her Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture however, the Bronx had beaten her to the punch and rebuilt itself without her! Inspired, rather than defeated, by the rebirth of her neighborhood, Aishah simply cast a wider net, dedicating her career to working with companies that specialized in residential design and community development.


    With over 22 years of experience in Design & Construction, Aishah has worked in both the private and public sector, managing projects ranging from $5 million to $75 million. In 2006, Aishah opened her own part-time interior design business while she still worked full time on other projects.


    As much as she loved working on the larger development projects, Aishah discovered that her true passion was working directly with people to bring the dreams they have for their homes to life. So in 2009, with her Master’s Degree in Business Administration and a Diploma in Interior Decorating, she decided to take her interior design business full time. Her goal is to be a one stop for her clients to service all of their interior design needs. For Aishah, it’s all about seeing her clients react when they see she has made their dream home a reality. “This is the most gratifying experience that you cannot put a price on.”

    Leslie’s role in With Child is her first appearance as a lead in a feature film. This unique movie tells the touching story of a widowed construction worker trying to rebuild his life as a single dad while struggling with the romantic advances of his eccentric new employer (played by Leslie). "When I read the script, I thought it would be a good fit for my first film as lead producer," Leslie explains. "I love the message of the film: What we choose now affects our past.”
