who we work with

At Steel Bay Designs, our mission is not just to create beautiful spaces - we aspire to find a harmonious balance between aesthetics and functionality while keeping a healthy return on investment in mind. Unlike magazine covers, we live in our homes, so our homes must work with our lifestyle. Through the use of strategic, thoughtful and effortlessly curated design, you’ll wonder how you’ve managed to survive this long without us.



"Bridges have been a common theme in all of the places I have lived. Pittsburgh (Steel City), where I am originally from, is known as The City of Bridges for its 400+ bridges, and San Francisco, the city by the Bay, for its iconic bridges. My slogan "bridging the gap" stems from a connection that's needed between where you are, and where you want to be, which seemed fitting, considering."

what's in a name?

"A home is a very expensive investment, one that our clients take a great deal of pride in.  Creating a stunning comfy home for our clients is an absolute honor and a privilege - If we can design a beautiful functional home that is not only timeless, but also returns at least double their investment when or if they decide to sell, then it's a win for everyone."

When I'm not busy creating in my studio, I'm taking time for my other favorite hobbies: restoring old houses, playing my uke or violin, taking long walks with my four rescued pups (Molly, Josie, Maggie & Leo), or running the trails in Tilden Park training for my next big race.

I value honesty, communication, and transparency above all else.
