B.A. in Interior Architecture, CID, LEED AP

My experience in architectural design, restaurant & hospitality, and travel have deepened my appreciation for traditions and quality. I feed my passions for food and culture while continuing to learn languages (particularly French, Spanish, Italian & Japanese), to expand my creativity, to preserve heritage and a healthy planet, and to encourage an open mind and heart.

Global Traveler, Designer, Photo Essayist

My passion is in discovering architecture, food, and cultures of the world. My greatest joy is traveling with my family as global citizens eager to learn about people and places. I study foreign language, watch documentaries and discussions, read, photograph, and write about my travel experiences. My husband and I have been fortunate to watch our two boys play competitive soccer throughout California, the US West Coast, and Europe.

I’ve spent over two decades designing spaces, combining beauty with function. My experience has expanded my views, inspired by worldwide traditions. I understand the fragility of humanity and the natural world. In both design and travel, I focus on the journey—space to space, culture to culture—inspired by innovation balanced with tradition, shaped by global experiences and great people. I tend to look at the world deeply, expressing my perspective of the world and show what inspires or moves me.

My mission is to elevate quality standards, promote integrity and expand awareness. Detail and passion generate quality. Artistry nurtures authenticity. Travel fosters appreciation. I want to preserve cultural heritage and art forms while embracing innovation and industry, thoughtfully created with detail, passion and artistry.

Be the change you wish to see in the world.

Vision

Work with other visionaries to align our efforts and positively impact our world.

Collaboration enhances quality. Research and travel promote a better understanding of people and places but must have an intention to preserve and elevate. Quality inspires us all. We must preserve traditions and techniques of quality craftsmanship. To thrive, we must value the beauty of nature, a clean planet, and healthy lifestyles for all. Cooperation is the key to enhancement and inspiration. Working together uplifts each of us and brings balance to the world.

PHILOSOPHY

Design Philosophy

A carefully planned design produces well-considered details in spaces and products that will be more functional and enjoyed longer, saving time and money. Focal points, materials, textures, and colors create visual interest.

Travel Philosophy

To understand other cultures and languages, my aim is to experience the world without judgment, to see life through different eyes, and to honor other customs and ways of communicating. Knowledge promotes understanding.

Food Philosophy

Good food starts with quality ingredients—fresh, local, seasonal ingredients grown or raised as nature intended without additives or chemicals. Balance is fundamental.

Sustainability

Innovative solutions must support a complex world, be sustainable long-term, preserve cultural heritage, and aid small, independent farmers, artisans, and businesses.
