I grew up here in Southern California and have always enjoyed art and design. I graduated in 1993 with a degree in architecture from the University of Southern California. After graduation I moved to New York City to pursue my dream of working as a designer and artist. After spending the next 12 years there, I managed to marry and have kids and decided to raise my kids back where I grew up. So, in 2005, I moved my family back to the O.C.
