I am an Interior Design and marketing creative with nearly a decade of experience with event production, programming and design. During my career, I have produced over 20 events with well over a million attendees. As Principal of Blu Amber Designs, I have worked directly with my clients in both interior and event spaces to achieve their needs on-time and within budget on every occasion.  I pride myself on creatively solving otherwise-difficult budget restrictions yet still keeping the integrity of the design.  
Previously, I spent over four years at Wyndham Vacation Ownership leading marketing initiatives, sales, and events reaching over 500,000 attendees including the Reno Tahoe Open, Phoenix Home and Garden Show, as well as several professional sporting events.  I also led event production and design at EQ3 which directly increased annual sales by 40%.  

AFTER YEARS IN THE DESIGN INDUSTRY AND NEVER BEING ABLE TO FIND WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR, I TOOK MATTERS INTO MY OWN HANDS AND BEGAN CREATING UNIQUE PIECES FOR CLIENTS AND FRIENDS.  DESIGN HAS BEEN A PASSION OF MINE SINCE I WAS A CHILD.  INSTEAD OF PLAYING WITH BARBIES I WAS DESIGNING THEIR HOME WITH ANYTHING I COULD FIND AROUND THE HOUSE.  SHOES, BOOKS, NICKNACKS BEWARE.  MY MOM WAS GREAT ENOUGH THAT ANYTIME I HAD A WILD IDEA ABOUT HOW I WANTED TO DECORATE MY ROOM SHE ENCOURAGED ME.  I WOULD PAINT MY WALLS, COMMISSION PIECES (AKA ASK MY MOM TO PAINT OR EVEN BUILD FURNITURE), AND MAKE MY OWN PILLOWS AND CURTAINS.  NOT ONLY THAT, I WOULD REARRANGE MY ROOM WEEKLY.  BY MYSELF MIGHT I ADD, EVEN AS A 9 YEAR OLD.  

WHEN IT CAME TIME TO GO OFF TO COLLEGE I TOOK A SHOT AT A NORMAL CURRICULUM, WHICH I LOVED BUT DESIGN WAS STILL SCREAMING OUT TO ME.  IT WAS DURING A BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CLASS WHEN WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE WORKING ON OUR BUSINESS PLAN AND I WAS MORE CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT THE INSIDE OF OUR TEAMS MOCK ICE CREAM SHOP WAS GOING TO LOOK LIKE I REALIZED I NEEDED TO FOLLOW MY DREAM.  AFTER MY FRESHMAN YEAR OF COLLEGE I SWITCHED MAJORS, MOVED 2,558 MILES AND STARTED TO EMBARK ON THIS DREAM OF DESIGN.  

FAST FORWARD TO NOW, OVER EIGHT YEARS LATER, DESIGN IS STILL MY PASSION AND I AM VERY EXCITED TO SEE WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS.
