My obsession with living spaces began in childhood as I learned, without knowing at the time, that how my environment was designed directly effected how I felt. I would ask my parents to take me to open houses so I could walk through the houses and experience the floorpans. I started to draw floor plans envisioning what I now know to be ranch style houses with pools in the center of a c-shape structure... I still love those floor plans! When I wrote a paper in 5th grade about becoming an architect when I grew up, and learned I would need 8 years of school, I promptly decided that would not be the career for me... If only I had known I would spend 20 years self-educating about design, architecture and the energy of how people respond to their environments. In 1998, I purchased an Edwardian duplex built in 1897 in the Bernal Heights area of San Francisco. It was a "fixer" and by "fixer" I mean a house that I would improve myself, with the help of my mother, the Alameda Flea Market, Urban Ore in Berkeley, and some willing friends... It was a true labor of love that proved fruitful and led me and my then boyfriend to pursue our passion for remodeling 5 homes, and eventually, building 7 homes. Along the way, with 18 moves and two kids added to the mix, we ditched our original careers (me a pilates instructor and him a chiropractor). It seems our interest in the "structure" of bodies translated to homes... the rest is history. I work with people who are hungry to make the most of their lives, to live their potential and fulfill their true purpose. So please don't try to fit your life into what's around you, change what's around you to fit your life. If you are here to play hard, then design a space for never-ending parties and adventures with the people you love. If you're here to create, design a life that allows you to do your best work, surrounded by mind-blowing beauty and ritual. My work (and years of therapy and personal experience) supports relationships during what is, no matter what, a stressful time. And, it's time for you to get what you want. There's nothing I love more than tearing down walls and hanging strings of lights so you can live big. I look forward to knowing you.

The focus of my designs is the creation of artful homes that are energy-efficient and environmentally sensitive. All designs strive to integrate natural light, air, views, landscape, and community.
