As a self proclaimed furniture and oriental rug junkie, I do believe I have selected the right career. Growing up, my love for design was nurtured by the surrounding history and architecture of the Washington DC, New York and Southern California areas. My secondary education started at the University of Idaho, studying Architecture and fine art. I determined however, after several years that my first love was Interior Design. I was drawn to the furniture, textiles, rugs and colors that interior spaces offer and figured that my education to date would only strengthen my abilities. After much research I decided to attend the Maryland Institute College of art where I earned a bachelor of fine art in interior design. My senior thesis was to design and actually have built, a house in the Catskill region of New York for my parents. They live there to this day. While attending school, I did an internship with one of my professors who was also a prominent designer in the Baltimore area. I ended up working with him for almost 10 years, learning the whole time. During that time I also started my own business, with clients in Baltimore, DC and New York city. In The early 1990’s the economy in the Mountain states was experiencing great growth so I pulled up stakes and moved back to Idaho, where I have been for the last 20 years. As the Director of the Interior Design Department, I have been helping clients in the Boise region as well as California, Northern Idaho, Arizona and some of my original clients on the east coast for over 15 years. Each new job and every new client gives my work a new perspective keeping things fresh and interesting. I have loved every aspect of what I do for over 30 years and look forward to many more.
