What’s your story?
When I moved to Manhattan in 2008 everything in the city was new to me. I was newly wed and had just been accepted to study at the New York School of Interior Design, which had always been my dream college. At the time I was facing one of the biggest challenges of my life, studying in a new country and yet to make friends. How could I meet and socialize with people who shared the same interests and passion as me? So I started to research about which associations could benefit me and further my professional career. That’s when I discovered and subsequently became a member of ASID. I felt like I had done something right. I found myself going to a lot of incredible events and networking like never before, and I was surprised how welcoming everybody was to new members. I liked the experience so much that I decided to start volunteering for ASID. These volunteering opportunities allowed me to meet many new designers, and I knew I was moving in the right direction.
How has your ASID membership influenced your career?
ASID influenced my career in so many ways. First of all I met people who helped me to believe in myself. There is no question that the networking process was absolutely essential. Everything started to evolve and I started winning competitions and gaining a lot of positive feedback from my blog and website. My blog was created with the intent to express my ideas and talk about events. So far it has received more than 10,000 views. Currently I am working as the curatorial assistant for Larry Weinberg at the Weinberg Modern showroom located at the New York Design Center. Larry's showroom specializes in vintage modern design and, under his guidance, I have learned a lot about design history and connoisseurship.
Who is an interior design idol or mentor of yours?
One of my favorite designers is Mario Buatta, who has been a master of design for the past 50 years. The consistency in his projects and career to date has inspired me tremendously. His artistic sensibility makes every project unique and special. He artfully blends fabrics and patterns creating a space very personal to each client. I believe his reputation is unsurpassed. My mother, too, is a creative, artistic person and always inspires me. She once told me that to modify your destiny you must act in the present. If you change nothing in your everyday life, nothing will change in the future.
