When the project scope is clearly determined, I work with clients towards generating a step by step design process to define the overall concept that will be referenced over and over throughout the project.  I begin the process with selecting the floor and exterior tile; especially when these stones are used inside and outside throughout the space.  These two selections are what set the tone for the rest of the house. One of my strengths as a designer is that I listen and dissect the likes and dislikes a client describes; this allows me to take the design a few layers deeper elevating the visual environmental aesthetics.   

I understand the obstacles of remodeling a space or building a new home, and believe that the design elements can be a step by step process which then allows the project to develop organically.  The construction planning of a project is very important and that is where I thrive with the minute details with the client and contractor.  Part of this includes being one step ahead of the subcontractors as there are always a ton of moving parts during the construction phase and communication is key. This is our opportunity to effectively relay our vision across to the trades and this is where my bi-lingual nature is a plus!
