Here, we ask designers to take a selfie and give us an inside look at their life.
Hometown: Newport Beach, CA.
Studio location: Los Angeles.
Describe what you make: I design seating and have expanded the collection with a couple different tables.
The most important thing you’ve designed to date: I’m really happy with the Gaspar Table and I’m working on expanding the collection around it. The Madda Chair is probably the most popular.
Describe the problem your work solves: First and foremost, my employment. But also I think that people want to enjoy unique objects or a design within a story. It makes spaces more enjoyable and I feel like my work attempts to solve those desires.
Describe the project you are working on now: I’m working on a few new chairs. I’d like to develop types of seating for every situation.
A new or forthcoming project we should know about: Definitely thinking about showing at the AD Design Show in March, and possibly ICFF in May.
What you absolutely must have in your studio: Endless playlists. Topo Chico. Friends in adjacent studios.
What you do when you’re not working: I play music with my band Massage, basketball at the Y, read the New Yorker, and general laziness. Hopefully traveling.
Sources of creative envy: Apartamento magazine, Mitch Hedburg, Frank Ocean, Mexico.
The distraction you want to eliminate: All the screens in my life.
