I left Australia in 1996 to the USA to experience life away from home. My walkabout has taken me to extraordinary places like Chicago, NYC, North Carolina, and now Northern Michigan. I initially started my career as a sports scientist which led me to interior design. Creating an atmosphere for athletes to win is to prepare the perfect environment before it occurs. This is also true for interiors. My philosophy of design is not about objects or things but to sync the mind and body to a meaningful environment that helps you gain clarity and trust.
After 23 years learning design in the USA, I now have ability to open Design Elemental, which mentors home and business owners to create spaces that enrich their lifestyles and stimulate meaningful memories.
Its been my vision to guide clients through an aesthetic exploration of color, texture, and scent. My trademark philosophy Human Sense Connectivity, provides a personal approach to design, evoking elements to memory, space, and nature.
In partnership with Socks Construction and Component Construction Systems, Design Elemental uses state-of-the-art component construction, a sustainable building method more economical and environmentally respectful than traditional construction. Our revolutionary way of building saves time, conserves resources, and minimizes waste, enabling us to offer luxury living and high-end living spaces with low environmental impact.
Rooted in the harmony of nature and the science of memory visualization, Design Elemental’s philosophy unites individual style with subtle elements of our natural world to create sophisticated, minimalist spaces tailored to each client’s unique palate.

It’s a thrill and an honor to be a part of Andreu World 2019 Catalog, highlighted in their new projects.
It was my vision for the Pike Electric’s IT Department to obtain an uncluttered, fresh, and organized workplace to better support employee communications and task awareness.
All Rockfon ceiling tiles have added acoustical support and Mannington carpet tile have cushioning to absorb noise. The open space environment was ideal for the engineers to gather in smaller or larger groups.
Andreu World’s furniture provided the minimalist palette with European comfort and style that compliments the commercial grade materials and textures selected throughout the project.
