Along with a Bachelors degree in Interior Architecture and Design from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, Tegan has extensive on the job design-build experience.  She seamlessly incorporates a modern design esthetic throughout her projects, from design and detailing, through project completion.

As an Architectural Interior Designer and Project Manager for M.W. Management Co., since October 2015, Tegan has reported directly to the companies' president, for the design and development of luxury residential projects. Responsibilities include space planning, conceptual design, furniture layout and selection, lighting design, detailing, softscape and hardscape design, material selection and specifications, all construction documents as well as on-site design and project management. 

Prior to M.W. Management Co., Tegan worked as a Designer for Bowery Design and Development, a developer of luxury residential projects. She oversaw concept development through material selection, product specifications and design documentation. Having worked for small and large firms, Tegan's on-site construction experience and hands-on skill set, lends her innate high style design capabilities.

Tegan pushes all of her consultants to achieve the highest level of craftsmanship in the quickest manner possible. Her attention to detail is unparallelled.
