It takes a village! Our extended team spans several continents; however, everyone in our core group remains in close contact to ensure perfect organization for all work.

Daniel, Principal

When not running his design firm or off on some far-flung 

excursion, Daniel often accompanies Roxy for her busy social engagements. A bit of a film buff and a great vegetarian cook, Daniel also likes more active hiking, running, sailing, dancing, and volleyball. More info about Daniel here.

Millison, Design & Admin Assistant

A California native, Millison returned to the Bay Area after living in Texas where she earned a BA in History. Finding herself always decorating and designing for those around her, she realized her passion for interior design. When not in work mode, Millison loves tending to DIY home projects and caring for her dog baby, Pongo, and her many other plant babies.

Now living in Portugal, Yulia has dedicated her keen eye to raising her young daughter. She also enjoys jogging along the beach and is a big fan of azulejo—traditional Portuguese tilework.

Donald, Associate Designer

Always the reliable source for candid assessment, Donald has a secret soft spot when it comes to Mohawk who, as a tireless social butterfly, is known in his New Mexico circles as "The Mayor."
