Born and raised on Long Island, I began my career by earning a degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design from New York Institute of Technology, School of Architecture & Design. One of my first jobs was as a designer in a kitchen and bath showroom. Pursuing design in a more technical manner I wound up working with a firm that refurbished private jets.
After that, I honed my skills as a custom furniture designer as well as designing for residential and commercial projects for a custom millwork shops, which ultimately led to working with a construction-design company on projects from Montauk to Manhattan in both a creative and technical role. I feel that all of these wonderful experiences combined to give me a wide variety of design experiences and I’m happy to combine those with my natural organizational skills to create designs that are well balanced, uncomplicated and visually tranquil.
I’ve had the pleasure of working on so many interiors in my career, varying from residential and commercial clients. Over fifteen years of diverse experience in the design and construction fields allows me to work with speed, accuracy and efficiently while producing desired results. I define success as happy customers who think to call me again or recommend me to a friend. I can think of no higher praise for my work.

From the beginning to the end it was a wonderful experience. Everyone from my salesperson, Theresa Caccavale, to our installers were excellent. Not only is the product high quality but the so are the people who work for you.

We live in a California Closets house! Upon moving into our new home, my first call was to California Closets to have our master bedroom walk in closet done, and two years later we had one of the bedroom closets designed. Both experiences were perfect from design to installation. Two foyer closets left, and my husband is hinting about the garage!

I have nothing but good things to say about my experience from start to finish. I knew what my wants and needs were, but was lost with the design concept. My designer Theresa listened to those wants and needs and came up with a design that I love.
