Design Philosophy: My design philosophy is to say ‘Yes’ to clients no matter how challenging the request.  I then find the product, information, and expert team to achieve the creative solution.

When I’m not working, you’ll find me walking my 2 adorable Havanese dogs, doing yoga, and completing challenging puzzles.  I also love the beach and ocean, and the occasional camping trip.
