The arrangement of complex structures, whether commercial or residential, has always fascinated me and inspired my curiosity. I am beyond privileged to have the opportunity to work on significant projects to see the transformation from start to finish. Notably, I am currently working on an extraordinary design project located at The Reserve at Lake Keowee. I am excited as the lead principal interior designer and to work with a dynamic design team.

There are no words to express my gratitude for God blessing me with a gift to do what I am passionate about, which is to design aesthetically pleasing, and functional spaces. I get a chance to splash my signature touch on the exterior as well as throughout the interior. Moreover, this is a unique project with many different levels and is extra special to me because environmentally friendly elements will be a significant part of this home, which will be a tremendous benefit to the clients now as well as in the future.

There is so much going on, but one of the most critical factors is to keep the communication clear to all individuals involved because when there is a variety of different jobs performed by highly skilled individuals when a change occurs, the need to know is highly critical. Even though there are different parts of a design project, I enjoy every single moment, and this includes the big details, right down to the smallest intricate detail.

These images show the transformation that has taken place since Phase 1. There is a lot so far. Regardless, I love the details such as the dome ceiling, as well as the many windows, which will give way to ample natural sunlight.
