No matter the size, scope, or budget of your project, you will need a designer, not just a cabinet or product sales person. What I bring to the project as your designer is not just a designer, but one with experience, patience, and material-ordering and scheduling capabilities. In other words, I get it done and get it done well.
My experience comes from 11 years of designing for full-scope remodeling projects, both kitchens and baths. I’ve ordered all the product for those projects as well. In every project, every decision affects something else. I would never say I’ve seen it all, because in remodeling that would be very naïve. I’ve seen a lot and know never to stop asking questions and learning even more.
The decisions you make won’t be easy, and I have a natural patience working with my clients. You will need someone who will stick with you and guide you when you need it and who let you share your ideas when you already know what you want. I get excited for every project I work on! I love it!
It’s more than design. It’s more than selling materials. It’s planning, specifying, ordering and scheduling. It’s customer service.
The most repeated feedback I’ve received from my clients after working with me was how much fun they had and how satisfied they were with their decisions! Check out my job photos! I’m so proud of them!
More about me:
My education comes from the Art Institute of Portland where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design degree in 2003.
I have a passion for a well-designed kitchen. I come from a very large family that loves to cook and entertain. With so many people packed into a kitchen, it can be much more meaningful to focus on the fun of sharing beautiful meals and great family time. In a well-designed kitchen, there is room to grow. From changing family sizes and configurations to creating more complex meals and cooking styles!
Working with Eastbank Interiors is such a pleasure. We are able to design with and order from a huge selection of cabinetry. Cliff has chosen for his showroom the best variety of cabinetry in every configuration and at every price point. We can design just about anything for anyone. And so many varieties of countertops! Quartz, wood, stainless. Anything you can think of, he’s got it here or can get it, and at a great value. He doesn’t have a lot of overhead, so he can offer just excellent pricing on everything here. I love it!
I have nearly 25 years of design experience in residential kitchens, wet bars, basement living spaces, and bathroom cabinetry. My career path began as a journeyman cabinetmaker and furniture designer near Aspen, Colorado where I was exposed to high end custom architectural design and quality craftsmanship in my late teens to early 20’s. Although I loved fine woodworking, I developed a real passion for designing cabinetry for living environments. Soon after, I coupled this experience with interior design school and my kitchen design career was born.
The professional belief I’ve always held is: “A kitchen should not only look spectacular but also function efficiently for it’s intended purpose”. I’m very proud to have designed many residential kitchens for professional chefs, business leaders who entertain friends and clients in their homes, couples who enjoy preparing delicious meals together, as well as family cooks just trying to get that meal on the table for their loved ones. I take pride in all my projects.
I truly enjoy sitting down with my clients to design their dream kitchen to cook in, a new master bathroom to relax in, wine rooms to “wow” their friends with, or that basement and/or man cave complete with a custom wet bar to enjoy that important game or family gathering. Projects of this scope can be a little nerve-racking, but I offer the guidance and experience to also make it fun and exciting.
Personally, I enjoy hiking, running, and cycling with my wife, wine tasting and cooking, woodworking, gardening, creating outdoor living spaces, and competitive shooting.
