”The key to great design is capturing the spirit of the client, and the essence of the space.” – Unknown
As the Founder of By Design, I am totally energized coming to work every day, to engage in any, and all new inspirations and challenges that will turn our clients’ dreams and goals into reality. My job is to improve the quality of life in the home, or workplace through a creative design aesthetic, efficient planning, and seamless functionality. By really listening to my clients and drawing inspiration from the spaces, a clear vision is born that carries a project to its successful completion. My wide range of experience in both the residential and commercial fields compounds a mosaic of design projects of varying scale, and in each and every one I embrace the challenge of creating inspiring spaces for my Clients to live and work in. This passion has allowed me to grow By Design, by thinking differently, being open-minded, and as the world of design is dynamic, being primed for the next new thing.

”Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” – Steve Jobs
I moved to Bermuda in 1989 and it was love at first sight! As a graduate of highly recognized Ryerson University in Toronto, with many years of experience in the field, I have a wealth of knowledge that is the platform to my creativity. I pride myself on my ability to create inspired design resolutions to challenging spaces while incorporating functionality and individual aesthetics. I see each project as a creative puzzle that needs to be solved and thrive on finding the right solution to each.

“The details are not the details, they make the design.” – Charles Eames
I have been working as an Interior Designer for over a decade, working on a diverse array of both Commercial and Residential design projects. I have developed good relationships and established invaluable connections with a number of our general contractors and sub-trades partners. My specialty is the production and management of contract documents including Planning Department Liaison. I enjoy working closely with all my clients in ensuring all their needs are met, and strive to eliminate pitfalls during the fit-outs in their work-places or homes.

I manage the behind-the-scenes magic at By Design as a long-term member of the team. I ensure that our clients receive the very best service as I oversee all proposals, orders, invoicing and purchasing requirements for every one of our projects. I also manage the coordination of each shipment and delivery and take pride in being able to see our design jobs through to the end. You can often find me on-site during installations to make sure that every item has found its place in its new home!
