What drives you to design?
I've been passionate about design since I remember. I believe Interior designers impact the lives of people in a given environment, whether meeting their needs in residential spaces, restaurants, offices. Interior spaces can make a difference in how life is experienced. What I love the most is helping create a space they'd love to spend time in.
Tell us your biggest design secret:
I strongly believe that the more information the better, having good communication with clients is key to a successful design that will meet their needs in functionality and aesthetics. Listening, observing, and being curious is the perfect combination.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
One of the things I love the most about being a designer is the fact that you can get inspiration from anywhere: daily life, people, cultures, the places I go and see. I like to take every project as a new adventure, explore the potential of every space, and implement new materials and compositions.
