I am a Saint Louis native but my insatiable quest for adventure delivered me to California after college where I spent the last 20 years loving life in warm and sunny San Diego. After receiving a Masters in Architecture I joined a talented crew of fellow designers (shout-out to Jules Wilson Design Studio) as a certified Interior Designer where I had the pleasure of working on a variety of project types including multi-family, high-end residential, hospitality, high-end fitness, and custom art fabrications too. 

Participating in a Table for Tots charity project benefitting Ronald McDonald house turned into a fortuitous event. Not only did we raise money for a wonderful charity and took home the prize for “Best Overall Design” but my partner became my husband and we are now raising three incredible children in our hand-crafted home. We recently relocated to Saint Louis and spent a better part of a year renovating a unique modern office studio into a family home. Once renovations were nearly complete my husband had his eye on joining SPACE: a perfect creative environment for design forward synergetic collaboration and fabrication and it was only a matter of time before I came on board too. 

 

Favorite Concert:
Beyonce at 2018 Coachella was definitely mind blowing but Outkast at the Pageant, Manu Chao at the Bull Ring in Tijuana, and M83 with the LA Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall are all up there. (& Jungle too!)

Favorite Architect:
Steve Hoard (obviously). I’m also a big fan of Louis Kahn.

Unbreakable Habit:
Crafts. I can’t help myself. I’m crafty. 

Favorite Quote:
“My perfect stimuli would be to swim in a crater on the moon full of warm rose water; there would be a warm breeze and David Bowie would be playing all day.

Interesting Fact:
I thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada.  It took 5 months and 5 pairs of shoes to walk the 2,653 mile trail.
