I had a dream of improving the lives of New Yorkers but was not sure how to do that with an art background. Watching interior design TV shows showed me that you can transform the way someone lives with artistic expertise. That has been so powerful for me.

I love creating designs that are pretty as well as practical. Getting to know my clients and understanding their lifestyles allows me to create spaces that function first and wow second.

I am a true crime junkie. When I am not designing, I am listening to crime podcasts, reading true crime books, and watching documentaries.
