After seeing your home, it's no surprise that you're an interior designer! Tell us about your career background.
I was introduced to design at a young age, spending lots of time on the job with my father, who is a contractor on Long Island, NY. I originally went to school for interior design but was persuaded to try a career in finance. I did pretty well in that field but found myself more interested in studying architectural plans for the office redesign than the Wall Street Journal. So I decided to ditch the finance career and focus on interior design full time.
