Book & Courses for Homeowners & Interior designers




Behind the Design

I'm passionate about transforming homes and lives through interior design & the business of interior design. 

about ME


I'm an accomplished interior designer, business coach, speaker, writer, and on-air contributor who has turned my lifetime passion for interior design into an opportunity to do the same for others. As a young man, my interest in creating beautiful spaces was sparked by my family’s talent in home building and renovations.

Soon, I began remodeling and redesigning home after home and combined a trade taught by my family with my natural aesthetic ability. Shortly after my career launch, I appeared on HGTV; and through this experience, my personality and design perspective were visible to a larger audience; and I was soon designing homes across the country! Next, I joined a prestigious interior design firm/furniture design company in Los Angeles, CA. Here, I gained an appreciation for the sophisticated west coast design style while collaborating on designs for many LA homes-including several celebrity clients. 

Fast forward and I have design firms on both US coasts, become a business coach, author, while still overseeing both of my offices. I'm so excited to share my decades of experience with you! 

Eternal optimist, animal advocate, travel addict, and lover of all things home and the business of home.

guilty pleasure

Snuggling with this little nugget (his name is Jax) on the sofa while watching a recent Real Housewives episode.



Starting my days slow, dinner parties with friends, and spoiling all of my nieces and nephews. 



I love kayaking as much as I love cupcakes. Hmmmm. maybe that's why I have to kayak.



This guy. My husband and partner of 20 years,  Pete. Believe it or not, he's as hilarious as he is handsome.


part of my job

That moment after a room is complete or a course has been taught and I see the smiles on the faces of my clients. Then we all pour a cocktail. 

Our clients are seekers of beauty, lovers of life, with a need for balance and beauty.
