I was born in south Trinidad, studied Architecture abroad, and returned home to start my career. I felt displaced for a while and spent a few years wetting my feet in the design industry and also trying to find who I was as a designer (and an adult) in the Caribbean context after coming of age in a foreign setting. Since then, I've come to value simple things like being true to what I believe, focusing on what means most to me, and finding beauty in the context in which I find myself. I think there is a great deal of clarity and luxury to be enjoyed when we simplify our lives to include just a few beloved people, possessions and places. This blog is an exploration of how this search for artful simplicity informs my design and lifestyle, and is an expression of hope that there are others who care to join me on this journey.
