What drives you to design?
I love to listen to my clients. I get joy out of bringing their visions to reality. The look on their faces when they are pleased with their finished look is priceless.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I draw my inspiration from being a cultural chameleon in New York and experiencing urban living first hand.
What’s your prediction for the next big trend in design?
I would have to say functional furniture is the next big trend in design. With many cites only having the option to build up and not out, it will be our responsibility to design living concepts that are bursting with personal style, yet functional.
