My unique background allows my clients to benefit from not only my creative talents but also my business acumen, budgeting skills and construction management knowledge. In addition to my Design education and over 21 years experience as an Designer, I also have a degree in Business Administration from the University of Southern California and over 6 years in the management of multi-million dollar construction companies.
After gaining over 10 years experience working for and with other well-known Designers, I began my own company, Design Synthesis in 2001. My exclusive Los Angeles residential design clientele includes several celebrities and my commercial work has includes offices and retail spaces throughout the Los Angeles area. I have been featured on HGTV as well as numerous magazines such as the Robb Report , Electronic Home and Kitchen and Bath Design.
I have a passion for truly listening to my clients and creating original spaces that fulfill all of their dreams and more. The essence of my design philosophy is epitomized in the name of my company: Design Synthesis. I am truly adept at combining modern and traditional design components against a background of clean lines to create a synthesis that is definitely more than the sum of its parts.
