Storytelling is central to my work as a designer.
The spaces in which we live offer great opportunities to express ourselves – where we’ve been, what we’ve done, who we’d like to be, and what’s important to us. Working within a rigorous framework of classic design principles, I strive to create functional, beautiful and meaningful environments for my clients. I do not feel bound to any one style in my work – I am much more interested in creating deeply personal spaces that speak to my clients’ personalities and histories – rooms that invoke an emotional response, and that feel like home.
