Interior Designer

While Interior design is my main career and passion, I also absolutely love to teach others, so I am thrilled to have found Udemy so that I can share that passion and knowledge with others just like you. 

Are you a design enthusiast yourself? 

Do you wish you could design rooms in your own home that are both beautiful and functional? 

Do you wonder how interior designers make it look so effortless? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are my ideal student! 

Through my classes, I show you how many areas of interior design can be broken down into simple-to-use processes and formulas.  In every class, I share some of my favorite processes and formulas so that you can be successful in creating beautiful rooms all on your own using an easy, systematic approach.

I’ve been designing and redesigning rooms for as long as I can remember – first for myself, then for friends and family, and finally decided to make it my full-time career.  Today, I own my own thriving interior design business in San Diego, California.  I primarily work in residential design, but have recently expanded to commercial work as well.  I also graduated from the Interior Design program at the New York Institute of Art and Design.

I hope you’ll join me in one or all of my classes, so you too can learn how to create your dream home!
