Design Objective
Working with clients to realize their dreams and enhance their surroundings by designing environments and living spaces that create a balance between lifestyle and nature, a blend of internal and external space.

Background
My passion is design and this enthusiasm and commitment began in early childhood. As it evolves daily, is truly a work in progress. By the time I was 18, my family had moved 22 times, owing to the fact that my father developed custom homes. This afforded me the opportunity not only to experience different living environments, but also to work for my father. Besides being an overall great person, he taught me all elements of construction, from planning and design to construction and finish work. To complement my “hands on” learning, I later completed Building Design coursework at Orange Coast College, and subsequently attended the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). Although I did not complete my studies at SCI-Arc, my passion for design was not diminished and I returned to working in the field and preparing design and construction documents for local architects. I soon obtained my General Contractor and Remodeler licenses and began working on my own, which I continue to do to this day. I take great pride in the path I have chosen and continue to be inspired and influenced by art, fashion, music, cultures, food and most of all, buildings and design. I am also extremely grateful to my peers for the knowledge and experiences they have imparted to me.

Approach
Our approach to each project is with an open, creative mind, as every client’s needs and vision are unique. We believe in function, enhancing every view possible, combined with simple design elements. We work with natural shade and shadow and believe that the design has to fit the client’s needs and also be sensitive to its environment. Our designs have a common thread… they are light and airy, combining an indoor/outdoor experience, overall enhancing the home’s natural beauty.

Kind regards,
