Why do you do what you do?
"I love the challenge of creating. Everyday event is unique and has it's own feel so I'm always having to figure out something new. Sometimes it's a small detail like how the drape will fold and hang, or sometimes we have to completely re-create or create a space from the bottom up. Everyday is fun when I'm designing."
