My road in life has been direct.
My first real job in high school was working for an interior designer who also owned a retail store.
Went to art school. Left school to return home and open an antiques store with my family.
Moved to LA, managed various furniture showrooms.
Opened a furniture show room with a business partner selling a line of furniture we designed.
Expanded business to include interior design work.
Closed our furniture showroom to focus on my own interior design work away from furniture sales.
Went to work for a larger design firm as creative director for 4 years.
Realized that running my own company was best for me, went back to my own design business again.
Keep following my journey

My work combines:
Being Creative

Day to Day

I run a business and like all business owners I pay bills, write orders, make schedules and run errands. I meet with clients to discuss their projects- it's my job to translate their ideas into a real working home. I meet with my craftspeople (builders, painters, furniture makers etc.) to keep the design on target. I work on new ideas in my studio and I go out looking for new materials / ideas to use in projects.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for professionals

Look up! Be connected. Pay attention to how people live, how they move about a space and how that space could be perfected. Read everything you can get your hands on. Go to art galleries and architectural monuments. Just be aware of how interior design affects you.

From Myself:

"You should find a more traditional profession. Being creative is not a real job."
