About 

Hello!

I am an interior designer with 12+ years of experience.  I am energetic, happy (most of the time) and have a great sense of humor.  I love working with people, and also enjoy working independently. I am a problem solver and have an efficient and organized way of working and planning.  I have a passion for Interior design because I truly believe the environment in which we live in should be one that shows are real character and makes us feel completely comfortable and at ease.  

I have been working at Kravet, Inc for the last 8 years in the showroom merchandising department where i have been responsible for 15 of our National Kravet Showroom floors.  I was the lead designer and project manager for the design, seeing it from concept to installation and completion.     

I have since relocated to Los Angeles after spending the last 11 years in New York City. I am ready for the next challenge and am eager to step into the LA Design community.  

Thank you!
