Title:  Interior Designer

Studio:  Irvine, CA

Personal Blurb:  When i’m not designing, i’m either planning a trip, climbing at the gym, or obsessing over cacti at a local nursery. Everyone knows I am happiest outside, but what people don’t really know is why I love it so much. When you’re backpacking you are left with a few pieces of nylon & some dehydrated food to rely on. Your mind quickly turns its focus to God. Because that’s all there really is. And that has never been more clear.

Choose a Movie Title for Your Life:  Mile… Mile and a Half: because it’s about the simple pleasures and hardships of spending your days on the trail. When things are hard in life you have no choice but to put one foot in front of the other and keep going.

Can You Play a Musical Instrument:  I can’t play any musical instruments… i can barely keep a beat! But i’ve recently gotten into water colors again. I take a small portable water color kit with me whenever i go backpacking and I paint on the trail.

3 Things on Your Bucket List:  1 – Take a year off, rent an RV, and visit all the national parks with my significant other, 2 – Live in Jerusalem for an extended period of time, at least 6 months & 3 – Visit Nepal to see the Himalayas.

Who In The Bible Do You Identify With the Most:  Martha. I identify with Martha because I’m a planner, I’m hospitable, and very organized. Also, like Martha, I tend to over do things, get lost in worries when things aren’t perfect, and lose sight of what’s really important.

What Does Being A Visioneer Mean to You:  Being a Visioneer means being able to do what you are made to do for the One who made you. It’s that simple! We are that lucky!
