During my final year in the Interior architecture program at UCLA I was presented with a rare opportunity to design and oversee projects in Paris, London, and the Middle East. It was demanding but worthwhile. By 2013 had the expertise necessary to open my own interior design firm.
Over the years I've had many homes. It was living in a high-rise loft in Downtown Los Angeles that made me realize my surrounding affect my mood, health and ability to be a well functioning human being. At first I loved the excitement and pulsing energy of the city. After a few months, I was chronically stressed, drained, worn out. Frankly, I was completely miserable and unhealthy. Why did this place have such a deleterious affect on me?
Fascinated by this phenomenon I revisited Feng Shui. An ancient system dedicated to understanding how humans and environments interact and affect one another. Within a few months I moved to a new home and became certified through Amanda Collins’ International Feng Shui School, a gold level institute (highest standard).
I combine my knowledge of interiors and Feng Shui to design homes where people thrive.
