I believe that design is a calling, and I’m inspired to create spaces that have a strong point of view while always holding functionality and the user-experience paramount.
I hear/see/feel harmony in the manipulation and juxtaposition of disparate elements that combine to compose places where people live and work without compromise, without thinking about their built environment except to praise it for its exceptional beauty and anticipatory thoughtfulness.
I believe design has a direct impact on the quality of our lives and that real improvement is available at every price point.
Using my imagination, empathy, and creativity to re-envision our world as a more gracious, responsible, and compassionate place brings me great satisfaction and the joy of knowing days that have been very, very well spent.
