"My background is in project management in the software development industry, where I worked for almost 10 years. During that time I was often asked by friends and family, who knew of my love of design, to help them decorate their homes. I never thought for a moment I could turn a hobby that I loved into a career I loved.
I got that chance when I moved to the U.S. and completed a degree in Interior Design and Architecture at the Harrington College of Design in Chicago. Next stop was London where I worked for an interior design company in Chelsea for a number of years . From there it was time to go it alone!
Nowadays I use my project management skills overseeing tradesmen on site, build timelines and clients' budgets as well as immersing myself in beautiful objects to create gorgeous homes."
