About
I studied Interior Design at the New York School of Interior Design.

Came back to Montreal and worked in the Film and Television business for quite a few years and went back into residential Interior Design full time in the year 2000

I Love: Cinema, treasure hunting in second hand stores, modern art, the New new thing and social trends.

Working with my clients in creating a beautiful space that will be comfortable and comforting. For me decorating is The Decoration of Life.

Profession: Decorator and Deco Coach not too sporty...I would describe myself as being a BoBo (Bourgeois Bohemian)
