Design Background & Goals: My first design job was in-house for a fondue restaurant chain, where I was paid more in cheese than money (not an altogether bad deal). I transitioned into residential design before landing in the world of Contract FF&E, where I spent nearly a decade. I worked my way from Designer to Project Manager to Director of Design, specifying FF&E for corporate, education, healthcare and government projects. In 2015, I made the decision to leave the corporate world and branch out on my own. I’ve always had the goal of creating the workplace I wish I had when I was in corporate America. I’m proud to have a team of brilliant and talented designers and I’m blessed to get to work with my family. I love that we have a fun and flexible work style.Our freedom from the traditional workspace allows us to see outside the box and create spaces unique to the amazing clients we work for.

Design Background & Goals: In 2020 I began interning with TSD as what was supposed to be a short summer internship then soon grew into a part-time role as I finished college to eventually becoming a full-time designer upon graduation. My goal is to continue learning and growing at TSD and to hopefully one day grow into a role where I can lead and help new designers.
