Tell us your biggest design secret:
My biggest design secret is actually you, the customer, and your design dilemma. The designs I create are not the designs I want for me, they are your idea brought to life! I represent that aesthetic-al bridge to make that design process work!
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
It is always a design challenge that gives me the inspiration. The more the client is expressive, the more options I can combine for the task, and then our medium becomes a success for both of us. Going from an idea to realization is a process that truly is my inspiration.
Describe your ideal project:
My Ideal project is creating a 100% organic material based home! We achieve that by designing the upholstery and case goods completely from the elements of nature, leaving polyester out of it! This process is so fun and is bringing us back to the essence of a healthy living experience.
