Yep, it’s true. After nearly a decade in Venice, I have moved my office and design studio to Hollywood.
James and I are sharing an enormous loft space, full of light with plenty of room to spread out and create. Across the street, Susanna makes delicious corn tortillas from scratch. (We frequent Tacos El Patio quite a bit now.)
Best of all, I am now able to ride the train to the office. I’ve never been able to indulge in so much reading in my life and it is truly a treat. It also makes me feel a little like Don Draper. I plan to get a trench coat when the weather cools off.
There have been a lot of changes over the past few weeks. My long time accounts manager and Jack of All Trades, Dennis, is moving to Austin and my long time assistant, Taylor, is going on a grand adventure to explore other parts of the world. I wish them both a very happy and amazing experience. They will be dearly missed.
Sarah (Moto) continues to freelance for me and I look forward to seeing more of her in the coming weeks when we will start up work again on the Caribbean project. I have also brought on Kelly Thompsen to help with projects. She just completed her internship and is doing a fantastic job, I know she will make an excellent addition.
We’re finally settled in now (both here and at the new house) and I am a excited about the wonderful things that are in store this summer.
