"To me good design has a very direct impact on our moods and how we experience everything around us each day. It's a deeply personal connection we don't always immediately recognize, but truly feel as we move throughout our built environments. Whether our clients have $3 million or $30,000 - I want them all to feel that sense of pride and inspiration when they walk in the door; that their home or workplace is a true reflection of their own unique lifestyles & personalities"
