We are renters, and probably for a very long time. We understand what it's like to move around a lot and be on a tight budget. There are solutions. You deserve a better living space, and we can help you for a realistic price.
I have traveled throughout Europe studying architecture in countries including France, Germany, Austria, The Czech Republic, Poland, Switzerland and Italy. I also spent a summer studying art in Hawaii. Living and working in New York City, I was an apprentice for a wedding dress designer and got involved with Gensler, a global architecture and design firm, at their New York Rockefeller office. I moved to California to become an intern at Gensler's San Francisco office, working with project managers and principals Julia Campbell, Scott Dunlap, and Collin Burry. I helped in the workplace studio designing projects for companies including IBM, Dodge and Cox, Deloitte, and Gensler's own office space plan.
I graduated from Brigham Young University in Idaho with a B.A. in interior design with honors in 2008. I currently and happily reside in the Bay area of California with my husband and two sons.
I love being a mother. My favorite thing is holding my children after they have awoken from their naps. I love to read--anything and everything I can get my hands on. I love to travel, mostly to romantic cities. Gimmelwald, Switzerland belongs to my husband and I. I wish I could have fresh-cut flowers in every room in the house.
I'm very detail-oriented. I can't go to bed some nights as I think about my goals and dreams. I can make to-do lists for days. I'm a reach-for-the-stars kind of girl and always have been, and I believe ordinary people can do extraordinary things. I love people and I hope that you and I can become friends through this blog.
It is so nice to meet you.
I like FELT. A lot. I feel an unusually strong desire to have lots and lots of FELT around--LIKE THESE felt ROCKS. I want to have all the rooms in every house I ever visit to have a pile of these to jump into.
I am currently 31. That number changes very regularly every March. I am kinda skinny but I call it LEAN. I feel strongly about playing a lot, and avoiding responsibility. I am inspired by people who have lofty goals. I was the only college baseball player that I knew who had a flower window box in his apartment, and pillows in the shape of skate companies that he sewed himself.
The day I met my wife I was trying to glue awesome blue fabric on to some white Italian loafers. Bad idea then, bad idea now. But I think that she thought there might be some potential in me. The jury is still out.
I Graduated from BYU in Exercise Science. I got an MBA in Athletic Administration. I currently work at Stanford University in Athletics. I have 12 wins and 54 losses in an ongoing Wrestling Super-Match with our 3-year-old, Satchel.
OH, AND I LOVE TO DESIGN INTERIOR SPACES. I LOVE TO BUILD FURNITURE.
I LOVE TO MAKE A HOUSE A HOME. I LOVE TO SEE SOMEONE SAY,
"I SPEND SO MUCH TIME HERE, AND I DESERVE MORE FOR MYSELF."
I LOVE TO HELP PEOPLE SEE THAT VISION.
