Every person I know needs a place to "hang their hat" (or shirt), shelve a book, watch a film, or check their email. Each person has unique needs for their spaces. I like to learn about my client's needs and desires to create the most comfortable and functional solutions...and why not throw in a little style?
Listening to our customers is my primary goal for designing spaces. Through casual conversation, I can get a feel about who they are and what type of lifestyle they lead. This in turn will help me design a beautiful storage solution that will satisfy their unique and individual needs.
One of my favorite games is Tetris. All the different falling shapes and pretty colors all needing to be fit in a small space, maximizing the amount of tiles to rack up points. The hours of playing this game have paid off! Over the years, falling objects have been only one reason that people have called and invited me into their homes.
I have always been passionate about organization and design, earning an advanced degree in Interior Design. I have had the privilege of designing custom storage solutions for California Closets since 2001. Throughout my career with California Closets, I have sold and designed over 2,000 custom storage systems for every room of the home.
I strive to provide each client with storage solutions that best compliment their home, needs and lifestyle while providing exceptional products and customer service. My goal is to exceed client’s expectations at every level of the process from the initial design consultation to the completion of an installation.
Every home has it’s own story and personality while each design is as unique as the space where it resides. I strive to create designs that are centered on functionality and lifestyle while matching the personalities of the homeowner and the home.
After many years in the Advertising and Marketing field, I decided to embark on a career change. A friend of mine who was a designer for California Closets, (and knew of my passion for the design industry), suggested that I pursue a design consultant career with California Closets. The combination of my past career experience, my love for design, and the innate need that a Virgo has to organize, I soon realized that I loved the challenge of creating customized storage solutions for my clients.
I started my career with California Closets in 1996. California Closets has been in my family for many years as my aunt and uncle are the current owners of the Denver, Colorado franchise. I started my career with California Closets as an installer and moved into a position as a design consultant in 2000.
When I first meet with a California Closets customer, I ask them what goals they have and what they would like to achieve with their space. Once I have heard their ideas, I work with them to create a proper storage solution for their items.The most gratifying part of my job with California Closets is when I can find the best solution for my client and provide a design that they absolutely love!

Establishing a positive and friendly connection with the client is my top priority; this creates a great experience for both parties and allows me to understand customers needs and preferences. Designing is my passion and interacting with each client is a challenge that excites me daily; it inspires me to create innovative and unique designs.
I truly have a global perspective when it comes to working with my clients and designing systems for their homes. Born in Brazil, I grew up in Upstate, NY. Before long, I moved to Israel and attended school in Geneva. I served in the Israeli army before earning a four-year de
As a designer, nothing brings me more joy than creating beautiful, functional spaces for my clients and the excitement I feel for them after the job is installed and they are thrilled! I come to you with a love of design and a desire to help you accomplish your goals.
