Summary

Established and well-respected Interior Designer with extensive experience in all

phases of residential and small scale commercial design.  A quick learner of areas not experienced with a strong working knowledge of space planning, conceptual design, design software, materials management and client relations.

 

I find myself best suited in a Design Setting where I can collaborate with team members to achieve the goals set forth by our clients.  Secondarily, I also work equally as well with the client as a consultant.  Being a strong ally for them in their design, to ensure that all their desires are reached, while still being the voice of reason.

Don't Be Fooled

  • When selling, do not put your home address in your ad.
  • To avoid scams, buy and sell with people you can meet locally, in person.
  • When meeting with someone you don't know, meet in a public place. If that's not possible, have a buddy with you. Also, carry a cell phone; if you feel unsafe, you can call a trusted friend, and stay on the line.
  • Never give out financial or private information like account numbers, PayPal login, or social security number.
  • If an offer sounds too good to be true, it is. Walk away!
