my name is noel and i am a design-oholic. It started earlier when i was a stock boy in a local lighting store. I looked at the vast display of lighting and i got addicted. There was this visual display lady in the showroom. She's french but i loved her. And i said to myself, "i want her f****ing job!" I went back to school; changed my major to interior design and the rest was a design career. Of course i got the job that the french lady had.
while attending school i worked as a design assistant for a high end furniture showroom. A year after i graduated, i was designing furniture and built-in caseworks for a model home design firm. Two years had passed and found myself working for an independent designer in rancho santa fe.
the next three years, i was designing florals and weddings. I was in a withdrawal stage and fell off the design wagon. I needed back a dose of retail. And it was more than a dose. I was doing visual display for a contemporary showroom. After three years i went to work for another retail showroom. Five years was spiraling out of control, I had to stop the madness.
presently, i am the visual stylist for another furniture showroom and do i love every minute of it? I can't help it I am a design junkie.
