1. What started it all for you?
2. What drives your creative spark?
3. Most treasured home decor item?
I love collecting art from different places and artists - I can't just pick one piece! I don't always hang all of it at once but I do like to shift things around. I like remembering where I was where I got it, what the backstory is, and its also a reminder of how my preferences change and evolve over time.
4. What’s the best advice you've ever received?
Be a good listener. I think a key part of what I do as a designer is listen and truly distill the essence of what my clients are needing and wanting. There's clues about what they need and are looking for everywhere in what they say. I think listening in this way is important to deliver them a space that maximizes their pleasure and happiness inside of it. Listening is something I'm getting better at as I get older and have children growing up around me in my own home. I think it's important to truly hear what people are saying around you in order to develop real connection and trust.
5. It's 5 o'clock at home. What would you be pouring?
I'm really into natural wines these days but also always have a seltzer with lemon going on in the background at all times.
