Los Angeles, CA, US



I have over 15 years experience within the Interior Design industry.  My passion for modern design is evident in my work and personal life.  I eat, drink and sleep design. Over the years I have developed lasting client relationships that continue to thrive today.  I have designed interiors for hair salons and art galleries, designed furniture for retail stores and corporate headquarters, created graphic layouts for local businesses and built sets for film and theater.  Not only do I have passion for what I do but, I also have the drive to do whatever it takes to get that job done.
