Born and raised in the wine country of northern California.  I developed a love of design at a young age.  While traveling with my family, staying in hotels and eating in restaurants, I would always admire the interior spaces.  My mom likes to joke that I would always check out the restrooms of hotels or restaurants.  I enjoyed seeing the creative liberty or element of surprise you often find hidden in public spaces.

I love all aspects of design, but I would say my true passion is plan design and cabinetry design.  I love the challenging puzzle piece aspect taking the needs and desires of the client, combined with the limitations of the site or space, and working through all the elements until it all fits perfectly.

I graduated from California State University Chico with a BA in Art with an Interior Design Focus. 

I have lived in Grand Rapids since 2004.
