An artist at heart, I studied Business in school to satisfy my practical and caring parents. I spent over a decade in a cubicle doing consulting, marketing, and business analysis. Convinced that my future was in the business world, I completed my MBA with honors from Boston University. Yet, when the opportunity presented itself to give up cubicle life to renovate houses…I jumped. I’ve been designing ever since.

My background taught me that…
* Creativity and technical knowledge are just the price of entry.
* Quality relationships are what separate great sketches from great kitchens.
* Respect, trust, and personal responsibility build quality relationships.
* Having fun doesn’t hurt either.
* And supporting others is essential to supporting ourselves.
