Born in Glendale, California, I have spent my life in the greater Los Angeles area. I attended the University of California Santa Cruz and the University of California Irvine and earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Women’s Studies in 2006. Throughout college I worked part-time at a home retail store during which my interest in design emerged. In 2005 I had the unique opportunity to assist in the renovation of twenty mid-century apartments in Pasadena. Soon to follow, I assisted in the transformation of a circa 1910 mansion located on Millionaires Row in the heart of Pasadena into a small real estate development office and the renovation of eight Mediterranean Style apartments. Beginning in 2006, I continued in my passion by designing and specifying the finish materials for twenty new construction apartments in Glendale, California. I was also able to design the two model apartments for the complex. I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to travel throughout Europe which has greatly expanded on my knowledge of historical architecture and furniture. All of these experiences allowed me to dive in head first to a world I knew little about, so  in order to further my education, I completed the Professional Designation Program at The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in the fall of 2008.  Every day I become more and more passionate about design and I hope to share some of that passion with you!

    Hi Megan,
    I just found your blog and lost track of time as I browsed your past entries. Great pictures and comments– esp. the one on LA restaurant interiors. I don’t always get time to search out inspiring pieces and I appreciate someone with a great eye mentioning their own “finds.”
    Good luck and have a great holiday.
