My pro­fes­sional am­bi­tion is to leave some­thing be­hind that peo­ple can re­mem­ber me by. I be­came a de­signer be­cause de­sign­ers leave be­hind a legacy, whether it’s a build­ing, an ob­ject or a piece of fur­ni­ture. Great fur­ni­ture pieces live in other peo­ple’s lives, get passed down and be­come some­thing that lives on be­yond you. My def­i­ni­tion of suc­cess is mea­sured by hap­pi­ness. It’s en­joy­ing what you do and do­ing it in an hon­est man­ner. As my grand­mother says, “It’s not about how much money you make, but rather how you make it.” The best ad­vice I’ve ever

re­ceived is don’t bite off more than you can chew. As a small stu­dio, we grow by tak­ing on more projects, but af­ter a while it gets to a point where you’re spread­ing your­self too thin, and there are con­se­quences to that. There’s only so much time in the day. Don’t lis­ten to peo­ple who ad­vise you to al­ways say yes.
