About me

Industry Architecture
Occupation Interior Designer
Location Seattle, Washington, United States
Introduction I am an interior designer who lived in Seattle, WA for 22 years and then relocated back to Hyderabad, India in June 2006, and then back to Seattle again in 2012. Prior to moving to India, I worked as designer in the retail field for 10 years, my last job was Store Designer for the coffee giant Starbucks, Inc. designing their S.California stores while imbibing large quantities of free soy lattes on a daily basis. Starbucks requires ALL their employees to do a one day barista training.......so if you ever need a 5 shot venti, 2/5th decaf, ristretto shot, 1pump Vanilla, 1pump Hazelnut, breve,1 sugar in the raw, with whip, carmel drizzle on top, free poured, 4 pump mocha - I can make you one! ! Though design is my first passion, I am also an avid yogaphile and an artist in a constant state of learning! I am blunt, outspoken, hot headed, impulsive, sometimes a bit irreverent, could care less what others think, but also generous, loving, and hopefully kind and compassionate. I am a vegan, I absolutely LOVE dogs and live here with my husband and 2 dachshund dogs, Lucy a fiery red dog and Junglee, a lazy black dog!

When your science teacher smashed a frozen rose with a hammer, did you warm the petals to bring them back to life?

I brought them home, pressed them between pages of a book, dried them and preserved them....
