My love for food and travel, combined with my early work experience in retail and restaurants, enhances my design process in hospitality. For me, when it comes to restaurants and hotels, service and authenticity are paramount.

I prefer sophistication over ostentation. I want to feel connection and warmth within a space. It is in these spaces that residential concepts meet commercial design.

A sense of pride in quality, details and customer service must be at the forefront of my guest experience. Establishments that celebrate authentic culture particularly pique my interest, so that when I enter, I feel either immersed in a place or transported to another. In a quest to identify life-enhancing experiences, I’d love to share mine and hear about yours.
