“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”- Steve Jobs. This quote by Steve Jobs encapsulates how I like to approach interior design, and I believe is reflected in the spaces my clients and I have created together. I enjoy starting the design process by really getting to know my clients, their lifestyle, habits, sense of personal style, how they use their space as all these details inform what we are going to do with the space so it represents who they are.

What I’ve come to appreciate outside of personally learning and constantly bettering your craft is keeping great relationships with your clientele. When people speak highly of your name in rooms you’re not in it’s one of the best feelings. to have a lead let you know someone wants to share magic with them through your business is priceless.

Matt Martinez | Photographer & Published Model

The most important factor behind my success/brand has to be the people I’ve met. Having opportunities to meet other photographers, other models, bands, clients, they have all helped push me forward. Just meeting a handful of people and getting the opportunity to work with them, and then being fortunate enough that they passed my information on to other future clients has helped me grow more than anything I have actively done to promote myself.
