About 

"Find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life."

I am highly experienced and valued in project management in the film and television industry, making the exciting  career switch into interior design, my true passion. I am enthusiastically hands on, I love creating beautiful spaces, and I am a problem solver by nature. I have experience in client management, accounting, and creative problem solving in an artistic environment, and I have a clear understanding of the needs of creative personnel to perform their best.
