Like many designers, my story starts at a tender age. My childhood bedroom was splashed with rainbows and the ceiling painted a brilliant blue full of cottony clouds. I got an unusual thrill from rearranging furniture, and concurred with my mom’s frustration that the kitchen could make so much more sense, if only we had a pull-out pantry and a few more feet of counter space. Some of my fondest memories are of weekends spent sneaking into half-constructed homes and taking trips to the hardware store with my dad; I, happily engaged in the paint aisle, while he puttered around the power tools.
My parents, an engineer and science teacher, also instilled in me a deep respect for the natural world. Fulfilled by long hikes, this love of the outdoors mingles with a passion for food that makes me right at home in the Bay Area. It is only logical that these two obsessions, hiking and eating, are where I draw much of my design inspiration: from the elegant curve of a eucalyptus leaf to the sunset-hued flesh of a ripe peach.
It is with tremendous gratitude that I find myself here. What can I inspire in you?
