Design Is In My DNA

I’m asked over and over again about how I first became interested in design. From a very early age – I’d actually say about 5 years old, I began to understand and really be aware of my surroundings. I was aware of color, space and scale. Regardless of where I was, I found myself redesigning and redecorating. I’m sure my parents, friends and family members had no idea how many times I had redone their homes.  If the space was off, I knew it – I felt it.

No matter where I am, I’m in redesign mode. My mind immediately senses what may be ‘off’ and it begins to fix it so to speak. I’ve always said I was born knowing what I wanted to do. Whether I’m sitting in a waiting room or just walking down the streets of Manhattan, I’m designing.
