For the second year in a row, I have had the pleasure of being counted amongst the 2012 Top 20 African American Interior Designers in the US.
Hosted, and presented by the esteemed Kimberly Ward of Pinkeggshell, the gathering took place in New York at Jay-Z's hot 40/40 Club. It was a fun filled evening of 'meets and greets' with the opportunity to say hello and share hugs and stories with other designers whose work I admire.
It was a fun opportunity to speak before the crowd, sharing anecdotes and talking about my experiences throughout the years while working on projects for Leonardo DiCaprio, David Geffen, Adrien Brody, John Mayer and David Garrett to name a few.
I am incredibly passionate about interior design and hopefully my bits inspired an up and coming designer to continue to work hard, be diligent and put the work in. It is indeed worth it!
Congrats to my fellow designers on the list. You guys rock!!! And BIG THANK YOU again to Kimberly Ward for her hard work.
