In addition to being a manufacturers' representative, I have a strong desire to give back to our community and have been involved in the following endeavors: 

Aids Service Foundation, Orange County (ASF) has my full support.  On February 7th, ASF & Laguna Art Museum raised over $600,000 to fight Aids at the annual Art for Aids Event.  ASF helps more than 1,500 people living with HIV disease.  Please join us on June 6th at UC-Irvine for the annual ASF Aids walk.  If you can't join us, walk for or support the charity of your choice.  We all can make a difference.

In May 2002, I was the Event Chair for the IIDA Interior Designer Charity Auction in Irvine. We raised money benefiting "No Limits", Children's Hospital of Orange County, Kid Care LA and IIDA (a not-for-profit organization). This was the fourth IIDA Auction we now have under our belts. 

Also, I have chaired other auctions benefiting such worthwhile organizations as Childhelp USA and The Hillview Acres Children's Home.  These events not only raised money for charity but they have given the community the opportunity to receive great deals on designer products while still helping children in need.

Rewarding Experiences Include:

  • IIDA-International Interior Design Association, Board of Directors, 1995-2002, Southern California Chapter

  • IFMA-International Facility Management Association, Board of Directors, in Los Angeles & Orange Chapters 1992-1997

Industry Recognition:

  • IFMA 1992 Leadership Award- Los Angeles Chapter

  • IIDA 1998 Board Member of the Year- Southern CA. Chapter

  • IIDA 1998 Worldwide President's Commendation Award

Like so many of you, I also actively support other worthy organizations and consider myself fortunate to be able to give back to the Southern California community that has given so much to me.

I appreciate the opportunity to do business with you and hope you share my drive and passion about life here in Southern California.
