I'm in love with 1) my family, 2) my friends, 3) design and 4) parties!

My experience with design started at an elegant and creative flower shop in my hometown of San Clemente, a small beach community in South Orange County.

I'm a USC grad (go Trojans!) and my degrees are in International Relations, Spanish and Gender Studies.

I love to bake and I hate to cook.  Cheese is my favorite food.

When my friends started getting married, they asked me to do their flowers and that's how my first business, La Partie Events, began (I did flowers, decor and planning for weddings for over 5 years).    

I'm married to my college sweetheart Ryan, and we live with our 2-year old daughter Reese in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.

My other professional experience is in the non-profit sector, doing fundraising and events.

Besides design, some of my other interests include dancing, Instagram-ing, working in the yard, shopping and travel.

My travels to places like Bali, Morocco, Costa Rica, France, Argentina, Tanzania, Mexico, Jamaica, Portugal, Zanzibar and Hong Kong have inspired me to incorporate the unique beauty of other cultures into my life and designs.

During college, I lived in Madrid, where I learned to love paella, walking in the park on Sundays, dancing the night away and the importance of a great party.
