I want to subsidize living on the beach in a clean white house eating fresh fish every day. So, let's get to work.
I was born on the Aegean in Izmir, Turkey where we lived an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. It was normal to have a jungle in your bathroom and eat family lunches and epic dinners outside overlooking the sea.
I studied ceramics and sculpture at LSU. So, you know, I shoot pool really well. I left the clean white lines of the Aegean stucco and then fell for the opulence and drama of the New Orleans courtyard.
Whatever I'm working on, I always aim for the highest visual impact without breaking the bank. I find solutions based on a life of diverse experiences and injuring myself - from running a landscape design firm to working for a master guilder. But I've hurt myself the most renovating multiple 'fixer-uppers' for rental properties. I taught myself how to lay wood flooring, tile walls, replace doors and windows, even replace toilets (not my favorite). Knowing how to do these things made me keenly aware of how much time and money projects take.
I enjoy collaborating with designers to make beautiful things we can smile at while drinking. I produce what I can and oversee what I can't. This is enough words. Let's go make something together.
