In my book, Strength and Simplicity: 100 Ways to Live Your Life as Art I recall and record methods I use to find joy in mundane daily activities. While this guidebook is more of a manual to life than a novel I do appreciate all ways of telling a story. I like beginnings, middles, and […]

I am an interior designer, author and teacher. I help people re-imagine their living and working spaces by using the guiding principles of my book Strength and Simplicity 100 Ways to Live Your Life as Art.
I am a designer of an experience. My goal is to create a look and feel naturally attuned to a space and its dream.
In my training seminars, weekend yoga and life workshops and through this website I share my guiding principles of keeping things simple.
I am a storyteller. Always identifying the right object or piece of furniture or graphic detail to accentuate and never distract.
I am a designer of inner experience. My goal is to create a look and feel naturally attuned to a space and its dream. I take a brand’s essence – its DNA – and then craft it into a three-dimensional environment. A wholesale showroom, a retail store or an e-commerce website, a living room, a bedroom. I extract and replicate its true purpose.
I identify the right object, piece of furniture or graphic detail to achieve the desired effect. I am hands-on from start to finish. I offer my clients extra-ordinary service while providing unique solutions to any challenge.
Quiet beauty that’s not distracting, but alluring and awake. Practical functionality that’s attractive and at times delightful and sensual.
My intention is to draw the viewer closer and evoke a feeling about something that is often beyond words. When I am part of a large team, my clients appreciate my ability to extract only the best ideas from the often disparate groups involved.
I am very grateful to have learned so much from my mentor, American fashion designer Calvin Klein.
I am also a teacher of marketing and product merchandising, as well as a certified yoga instructor. I work both remotely and on-site, incorporating the wisdom drawn from many years of working in New York City and abroad in highly competitive and exacting environments.
As a result, I learned to turn inward to my center and from this place emerged SIMPLIFIED YOGA INSTRUCTION. In executive training seminars, weekend yoga and life workshops and through this website, I share my guiding principle of keeping things strong and simple while showing you how to do that, too.
I am the author of Strength & Simplicity: 100 Ways to Live Your Life as Art. I am a storyteller – both off and on the page. When I write, I am careful and measured, always listening for the music beneath the words. I pray that one day I can say the same for my speech.
Each week I share and explore my musings on topics related to my book Strength and Simplicity 100 Ways to Live Your Life as Art.
Through the form of these brief posts I articulate my love of beauty and order. I always pair extreme practicality and beauty punctuated with resourceful ways to enjoy the power of slowing down and simplifying everything we do
Living Simplified is my way of navigating the world: my work, my home, myself.
Consider this website to be a life management course on why it’s vital to keep things simple and how, through keeping things simple, we can enjoy every moment of our lives no matter what is happening around and inside us.
Living Simplified Now is my very own manual or guidebook of the many ways I have learned to make my life easier.
And who doesn’t want an easier life?

Simplified Yoga InstructionTM
People choose their yoga teacher for many of the same reasons they might hire an interior designer: because they truly like the person and believe the knowledge, awareness and integrity with which this teacher or designer treats and occupies space is something they aspire to.
My goal is to be this person for you.
How could I not share something so dear to me for more than three decades? My self-care and love of ritual and routine enhances the orderliness of my daily life, and the physical and mental vigor I feel I attribute to my Hatha Yoga practice.
Please join me for one of my classes: in person, online or in the short video of The Five Tibetan Rites modified for sitting in a chair.
