ABOUT

I love working with people with a vision who need to create order from chaos. I love to make ideas workeable and translate them into action. I am a simplifier and a solutionist

 

Spaces and experiences are for me the most powerful communication tools available to boost your business and engage your customer. I have one main objective: to use my 25 years experience in interior design, marketing and business development to help realise projects for business owners, agencies, consultants and brand owners.

Through 50+ projects across 10 sectors and 4 countries I have designed concept shops, cafes and premium interiors; I have launched a new line of furniture, art directed a webshop and developed the concept of an innovative kitchen brand. I am known to expand my clients’ vision through asking challenging questions: What word do you want to own? Why is your customer buying from you? What are you selling your customer? What emotional response are you after?

I love working with people with a vision who need to create order from chaos. I love to make ideas workeable and translate them into action. I am a simplifier and a solutionist.

My habitat is the sector of lifestyle either design (luxury, premium, modern brands) or food (healthy brands) with brands that want to make a difference and build sustainably for the long haul, whether a freelance project or long term assignment.
