My adventures through several winters on the freezing decks of a Norwegian fishing trawler in the Bering Sea instilled in me grit, perseverance, and self-reliance. Many years in Telluride doing public relations for the ski area developed my eye for innovative marketing, people skills, and ski legs. As Oliver Stone’s personal chef and a wine consultant, I found my passion for all things food and an appreciation for kitchen design. My experience as a ranch hand in Jackson Hole taught me the value of simplicity in life. It gives me great joy to help people through change, the only constant in life. In the course of my twenty year career I have seen how essential to one’s well-being it is to inhabit a place and a property that truly speaks to you. A home is the most intimate sculpture you’ll experience. The right structure can immeasurably elevate how we nest, gather, nourish, and create our daily rhythms. As we evolve in the journey of life our homes should too. Our health and happiness is deeply connected to the way in which connect to proportion, space, and light. The world has changed, and people are living differently. It is deeply rewarding to help people consciously choose how they live.
