Birds of a Feather
Hey, how's it going? I'm Mike.
I’m based in Los Angeles, so feel free to consider me “The West Wing” of The Design Raven.
After working as an Art Director for major brands- specifically Brooks Brothers, Macy’s, Modern Bride Magazine, Target, and Estée Lauder, I transitioned into the design biz – something I’ve always had a knack for.
At first, I worked as an in-house interior designer for Crate and Barrel, then went out on my own. I’ve done homes for several celebrities and plan on doing more. I’m obsessed with “1970s Glam”… and if you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend the book Seventies Glamour by David Willis.
A diehard advocate for animal welfare, you’ll often find me posting about abandoned or abused dogs in need of adoption, care, and love.
In My Spare Time
I enjoy visiting open houses to get design inspiration, and vintage shops to hunt for designer furniture. You’d be amazed by some of the hidden treasures I’ve uncovered over the years!
Claim to Fame
I once skydived with film & TV actor Jan-Michael Vincent.
Betcha Didn't Know
I speak Esperanto, a constructed international language originally created to break linguistic barriers. Millions of people all over the world speak it, so I can always communicate easily no matter where I travel.
