What drives you to design?
Every design project is different. It's a new challenge; a new puzzle to solve. I love being able to take a clean or messy slate and turn it into a beautiful and functional space that makes my client happy.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I follow other designers, brands and trends on social media; I walk around interesting neighborhoods such as Brooklyn, to see new things and get ideas; I browse through interior magazines, I read about the history of design and I love to visit/stay at hotels to get ideas for a space.
We know you love designing, but what about it do you love most?
I love it when my client is happy with the outcome and that smile on her/his face!
