About


Flowers are truly a passion of mine. From a very young age I found myself creating and designing projects around flowers. I love and appreciate all types of floral designs. From the ornate floral arrangement, to the simplicity of a single stem, I love it all.

I was fortunate to have lived in Asia as a child, and I have traveled extensively throughout Asia and Europe. I am fascinated by different cultures and traditions, and I work to incorporate fresh and exotic details into my designs.

My own style leans towards the tastefully ornate and naturalistic. I love designing around natural elements such branches, stones, bamboo and exotic wood. Starting with your taste preferences, theme, and colors, I look for ways to bring out the unexpected in the arrangements. It could be the coupling of succulents and wildflowers that provides a pleasant contrast. Or tiny, hand appliqué gems at the center of each bloom. To me, flowers are an art form and a way of expression; so if you’re pursuing a theme or mood, let’s really go for it!

I’ve been designing florals for almost fifteen years now, and I’m fortunate to share the benefits of my experience with great clients. I work with exceptional brides, corporations, organizations such as the San Diego Opera and UBS, and wonderful charities including National Charity League and Las Patrones. I’m a So Cal native, and I have four adorable kids, a devoted husband, and two loyal dogs (a Basset Hound and a Bernese Mountain Dog.)

I believe that florals bring events to life, and I’d love to help you with yours
