I was born abroad but grew up in the Deep South, where I acquired a love of its rich multicultural and historic design, particularly the antebellum splendor of Natchez and the magnificent architecture and antique shops of New Orleans .   
I received my Bachelor of Interior Design (B.I.D.) from Louisiana State University, then headed north to pursue graduate study at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where. I  immersed myself in the city's high modernism and contemporary design. 
 
I received my Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) in interior architecture, interning in exhibit design at the Field Museum then working as an interior design consultant for a small  architecture firm in the Gold Coast. 
 
Subsequently I became a professor of interior design at Central Michigan University, then Indiana State University, during which I published writings and did freelance design projects.  I now live  in Marquette, Michigan, a picturesque town tucked along the southern shore of Lake Superior.
