I began my career as a photographer.
I have always been drawn to the visual world around me, and capturing it on film, as a profession, wasn’t work – it was constantly exciting.
My evolution into design journalism was a natural next chapter and it happened with Metropolitan Home Magazine, which, like Designer Previews was a pioneer in the world of design. It was the best possible place to become exposed to everything that was groundbreaking at that time. I was among the select group of editors fortunate enough to work for Met Home for over 25 years. First, as an editor covering Boston and New England, and then, when moving to Manhattan in 1995, broadening the scope of my contributions.
My work covering design and architecture has fueled my passion for exposing fresh, creative design talent. In addition to Met Home, I wrote and contributed to numerous national magazines, such as Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Interior Design, and the New York Times. I had a column in the Wall Street Journal/Weekend Journal, after I authored the THE HOME OFFICE BOOK, the first to focus on the home office as a room with style possibilities, published well ahead of its time, in 1996.
As a journalist I covered homes and restaurants, shops and hotels, offices of all kinds, all designed by some of the world’s best design professionals. It’s a privilege to have them now be part of my team at Designer Previews.
Every time I meet with a client I draw upon my design background and experience. I incorporate its relevance for the real life situations and challenges that homeowners, restaurateurs, shop owners or hoteliers face when embarking on a new project. I listen, evaluate and match each client to just the right designer to turn their vision into reality.
And I look forward to meeting you as you enter your next exciting chapter – your design project.
