Did you work at Daly's before joining the design staff?
"My first job at Daly's was as the custom tinter. This gives me a deep understanding of how color works and the practical know-how of the products that I specify."
What influences you as a designer?
"After my earlier times at Daly's, I spent many years as a decorative painter creating custom faux finishes. I am also a fine arts painter, and this definitely affects how I approach my design projects. I am influenced by unique items and historic details, as well as current design trends."
How do you like to work with customers?
"I like to listen to my customers and also to let their house 'speak'. I want to bring out the best with everything - whether it helping with a single color selection or the whole home.
I love it when working with clients brings out a synergy better than either of us expected at the start."
When you aren't designing, what are you doing?
I love hands-on projects. I'm currently teaching myself to design and sew clothing. Or you will find me cooking every week; it's my happy place."
