Tell us about your job as a designer.
At age 24, I walked into a decorating and design establishment and said, “I want to be a designer.” I worked there full-time during the day and studied interior design at night. What I learned was invaluable. Today, I do small commercial jobs, but most of my work is residential. Relationships are important to me — with clients and in the industry.
Who do you partner with to serve your customers?
I am a one-man show, but by partnering with ProSource Wholesale, I have a staff of knowledgeable professionals representing me every day. I can’t say enough about my account manager, Heather. She makes sure I’m taken care of every step of the way.
What are some of the hottest home design trends right now?
It’s pretty “greige” out there. People seem to be paring down and returning to simple, classic design — nothing fussy or overdone. My work tends to be transitional, or as I like to say, “traditional with a sense of modernity.” I love neutrals with a pop of color.
What are the some of the toughest challenges facing your clients, and how can you help?
My clients are overwhelmed with choices. They rely on me to understand their needs and present the best options for them in both design and price.
What's one thing you wish your customers could know about home design?
That there is no right or wrong. It’s your home, you need to love it and should have what you want in it.
What is the most satisfying aspect of your job?
Nothing makes me happier than to have a client look at me and say, “Wow! You listened to everything I said, and every detail is something I love.” I ask questions about the clients themselves — their likes and dislikes, how they live. I work hard to make sure their space represents who they are. That’s what makes a house feel like a home.
