I began giving design advise (some of it appreciated and some not) at the age of 5. When it came time to choose a career my direction was predetermined. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design from Fresno State. I chose this specific BA program because Fresno State’s Interior Design curriculum was housed in the Industrial Technology Deportment.
Attending Fresno State and graduating not only invigorated my passion for design but also provided me experience and knowledge of the trades I rely on to bring my designs to life. I have worked in a variety of trades including hanging drywall, framing, installing tile and a little electrical. Although I appreciate being able to make a living doing something I love, my primary motivation is to create homes from houses and to make the world a little more beautiful.
