Travel and Design

I hate to fly but love to travel.  It gives me anxiety and I often get trip bookers remorse. On our family trip this year we traveled to Panama. It was a 6 hour flight just to get there. We planed a mid trip excursion to Bocas Del Toros (an island on the Caribbean) and… Read more »

My experience at The Consumer Electronic Show

Attending CES changed my life. I was offered passes from a client. One of the many perks of my job. I was super excited to see the robots, fancy cars and drones that receive all the media coverage. There were plenty of all of those things. My favorite was the Star Wars Drones which drew… Read more »

It’s the little things….

If you wander around my house you will see little things on display. To anyone else it’s just stuff but to me each collectable represents a memory. I collect lots of different things but you can always catch my eye with something with the number three. I like 3’s so much they are embroidered on… Read more »

Giving into Temptation

Every day I shop for clients, it’s like taking someone on a diet to a gourmet bakery. There is temptation everywhere. Over the years I have seen the most beautiful things for homes. Some things I secretly covet for myself and lay in bed dreaming about and other things while perfect for my client don’t… Read more »

My Garden

My garden is my happy place. I love the odd shaped vegetables and the small fruits. Nothing I have grown would catch your eye in a commercial grocery store. Living here in the Las Vegas desert and being able to grow these imperfect yet delicious fruits and vegetables is what gives me the most pleasure…. Read more »
