Clients I'm Seeking:


I am located in northern California near San Francisco. But I have done, and will do, work all over the United States. I specialize in Interior Design and also Social Media. Please contact me if you have: need for a writer to execute newsletter/social media/online outreach, a food service project of any sort (café, full service restaurant, dining hall, coffee bar), a project that has a food service component and you need food service expertise and contacts to complete this portion of the project, a project that requires a designer from concept through construction, a project presentation that requires design drawings, a project documentation deadline that you can’t meet without another set of hands, a project that needs to be managed, a project under construction that requires someone in the field to oversee the build, too much work, too many deadlines, too few hands.

About My Business:


I have over 20 years of experience as an interior designer working on a diverse range of project types and sizes including workplace, retail, residential and food service. For the first 15 years of my career I worked with architectural firms creating office space from video conference centers to complete office buildings and corporate campuses. I also designed retail space for companies both boutique and national. During this time I also managed the design and construction of various small and large scale residential projects. I was responsible for the creation and coordination of my projects from inception through construction and worked closely with my design teams and the architect and construction teams to bring my projects to gratifying completion. In 2003, I completed my first full service restaurant project. This was the beginning of many collaborations with small architectural firms specializing in food service projects. My background in the restaurant business contributes to my understanding of this highly designed and operationally driven architectural space. Since 2003, I have focused mainly on food service projects completing both commercial restaurants and residential kitchens. In addition to project experience, I’ve achieved LEED accreditation and bring my expertise and passion for sustainability to my project teams. A native of the Bay Area, I am a professional interior designer. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from San Jose State University, a NASAD accredited institution. I passed the Design Qualification exam in 1995 and became a LEED Accredited Professional in 2009. In 2013 I passed the certification exam to become a Certified Interior Designer in the state of California. In addition to providing Interior Design services, I am also a specialist in social media: blogs, newsletters, linkedin, facebook, pinterest, twitter. It’s a never ending opportunity to connect. As designers and restaurateurs we know the value of connection. Making connections through social media is not the same as picking up the phone, something that you are undoubtedly very good at. It requires specific attention and knowledge that you may not have time to cultivate in your staff. I will help you to craft an image that works across as many platforms as you choose to utilize. I can create a website and/or blog site for you, create a newsletter format, and set up social media sites as you like. I write articles, posts and blog entries tailored to your message on topics like these: architecture; design; art; food; restaurants; creativity. Posts can be as short as a few words with a link and blog entries/newsletter articles as long as 500 words. All writing is aimed at an online audience and can be image heavy or text heavy, depending on need. I can also help you to set up an email marketing service account (Constant Contact, MailChimp, etc.), and interconnect your social media sites allowing one post to cover many platforms so that you have complete online coverage.
