I do kitchen and home design, helping people plan remodels and construction that give them the best use of their space, maximizing every square foot and optimizing traffic patterns, storage, and workflow. My projects range from kitchen remodels and new construction to basement conversions, additions, and whole house renovations. I produce printed plans for you and your contractor as well as 2D and 3D CAD drawings that you can walk through on your computer, tablet or smartphone. In addition, I sell several lines of quality cabinets.
I studied at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and taught Photoshop and computer graphics at college level for over 15 years. My passion for optimal workflow, ergonomics, and comfortable, beautiful living spaces, — and meeting your individual needs and desires — drives my design work.
