  • Chip adds comic relief to the team would be an understatement; he keeps us rolling, and also on our toes but he also can focus at the same time. He has 15 years of experience of housing and interior design.
  • Joanna self identifies as a driver, and takes pride in her work. But she also loves to have fun with Chip and appreciates his hilarious antics. She has worked at many boutiques and that has influenced her design elements.
