I started this business I saw an opportunity to help out a few divorced dads in my old neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. My partner, Jeff, is a divorced father who was looking to meet other dads in the neighborhood that he could not only commiserate with hopefully they had kids around the same age as his own children. So he started a little meetup in Park Slope. One night he came home and mentioned to me that one of the dads was having a really hard time figuring out how to organize his new home. 

A lightbulb went off in my head. And that dad became my first client. In fact, he is still a client to this day! 

In the summer of 2019 we relocated from NYC to Austin, TX. It was during this move that I could no longer ignore how unfulfilled I felt in my career. I guess the company I worked for could feel it too – I was let go shortly after changing my address. And that is when Design Happy was truly born. It wasn’t long before I hired a coach. I had never done it before and didn’t know what to expect. What I gained and created in the first few months amazed me. I decided I needed more of this in my life – I wanted to do for others what my coach was doing for me. 

I created this company to finally be able to do the one thing I’ve been wanting to do my whole life: help people. Help them become happier. Help get their sh*t together. Help them get closer with their spouse, or their teenage daughter, or their six year old son. Help them finally clean out that hall closet or organize the pantry. Help them take their business to the next level by creating efficiencies in their workflow through documentation and playbooks. 

I absolutely live to help people them realize their dreams are closer to their reach than they could ever imagine. 

I never used to be the kind of person who believed that you could tell the universe what you wanted and then viola! The universe would provide. 

I am now. 

I am one of those universe-loving,  goes-in-for-a-hug-when-you-clearly-want-a-handshake type people. 

And I’m loving every minute of it. 

You can create the life you want today

Not ten years from now. 

Not once you retire. 


I know the power that lies within each of us. I know because once I shed the last layer of skepticism and started believing in myself, I was able to create the life that I have always dreamed of. 

I want to help you create the life of your dreams.
