Hi! I’m Emily.

When I was five, I knew that I wanted to be an architect. There was a brief departure from that at age 10, when I considered becoming a model, but those height projections when you are two turned out to be widely unrealistic. In the end, when I capped out at 5’3″, it was back to architecture. So I earned my bachelors degree in Architecture at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. After graduating, I moved to Paris to work in a design firm (and also to frequent museums, sit in parks, window shop and eat as many good meals as my small salary allowed).

Since I am a native San Diegan, I didn’t stray too far from home. When I returned to “real life,” I settled in Los Angeles, where I have enjoyed working in a variety of creative companies. Early on, I worked for local design firms, then took a break to start and run a letterpress stationery company for several years. Eventually, my love of innovation, design, architecture and technology pulled me back in and I was most recently the Director of Development at a newly formed modern home company. Currently, I work in creative development for another growing and thriving firm.

When I am not working, I love to spend time with my husband and our 5 year old son- fixing up our 100-yr old bungalow and attempting to garden (it’s harder than it looks, people). I also love trying new things (ceramics, painting- also harder than you’d think) and spending time with family and friends. I thank the Lord for the blessings he has given me in this life.

I have blogged on and off since 2007 and I enjoy the chance to share even a little about what is going on in my life. I hope you enjoy reading, and please comment when something strikes you or email me with thoughts.
