  • Design Philosophy

    As the Owner and Principal Designer of The Brown Design Group, I have found a way to combine my passion for design with my desire to enjoy a mountain lifestyle. On a daily basis, I am fortunate to derive my energy and design sensibilities from living in the astounding richness and awe-inspiring beauty of Mammoth Lakes. I believe that design impacts the way we live. Therefore, in all the geographical locations in which I design, I strive for rich but subtle simplicity, a sense of tradition, and beautiful enduring design that fits with our client’s vision.

  • Background

    I was born and raised in Pacific Palisades, California and studied architecture at UCLA. My grandmother’s house in Beverly Hills had a profound effect on my design sensibilities. Designed by Wallace Neff, it had a timeless and substantial feel. It was large, but also cozy with charm and classic details. I bring those memories and impressions with me to every project. I feel strongly that every home should feel inevitable – it should feel like the place we were always meant to be and where we are completely comfortable. It should never be just an assemblage of furniture or the result of quick shopping to make do.

    Design Studio

    As a skiing and hiking enthusiast, I relocated to Mammoth Lakes over 30 years ago. I built The Big Red Building in Mammoth Lakes, a spectacular design studio which houses the largest sample library within a two-hundred-mile radius. The design studio allows the team at Brown Design Group to work with every advantage of a large city. By making extremely good use of new technology and with excellent communication skills, all things can be accomplished. We are small, but we are mighty.
