We focus on creating recognizable exterior identities and moods and atmospheres for the interior. We have worked on over a dozen exclusive luxury Superyachts. These involved the highest and most demanding standard of entertainment and living spaces in hospitality. For many projects, we do full exterior and interior lighting design while for others, we are also available as technical lighting consultants on targeted questions.

She has over 15 years expertise as a performance racer and is a dedicated, active New York Yacht Club member which gives her a unique, in-depth understanding and skill-set to address the design and technical challenges on yachts.
