After earning my Art History degree at CU Boulder and studying Rennaissance architecture in Italy, I moved to New York to run my own fashion line, which proved to be creatively rewarding, yet not quite “me.” Soon after, I was serendipitously introduced to a talented downtown interior designer. I honed my skills and fell in love with design only to branch out on my own in 2009. In 2013, my husband and I moved our thriving businesses to Atlanta.
With residential and commercial experience in New York City, Westchester, Portland, and Atlanta, I have also worked in retail and commercial design, assisting on the children’s store Bundle in Soho and the Palm Jumeirah in Abu Dhabi. I reside in Atlanta with my husband Jack, sons Coley and Max, and dog Ned. Within the city, my work spans from Buckhead to Grant Park and everywhere in between.
