CHARIOT


OWNER BACKGROUND

I am a native North-westerner, and have worked as an interior designer in Portland and Astoria, Oregon for the past twelve + years.  During this time, I have worked with world class architecture firms, as well as my own projects. My passion is in the creative design process, and my role is to lead a design until a project is built and complete. My background is in both commercial and residential design. Some of the key clients I have worked with over the years include Windermere Realty, Portland Center Stage, Nike, Google, and Columbia Sportswear. 

Working with local craftspeople to source unique materials and products has always been a key aspect of my work and a passion of mine. Whether it's a custom tufted headboard for a guest bedroom, or sourcing a vintage industrial stool for a cafe project, I believe each detail is an important part of an entire design concept. 

By the light of the moon, I pour myself into Psychic Siamese Terror, a 'spiritual guidance' business that I co-own. Birthed in 2011, Psychic Siamese Terror specializes in astrology and tarot, offering private consultations, spiritual workshops, and working at large events. We have participated in local events; including The Festival of the Dark Arts at Fort George Brewery, the Midsummer Scandinavian Festival at Astoria's fairgrounds, and Full Moon workshops at the Sou’Wester Lodge in Seaview, WA. CHARIOT will be connected to Psychic Siamese Terror in spirit by carrying magical products and providing on site spiritual workshops.
