If there’s a better way of designing something, Marissa wants in. She is passionate about great ideas, purposeful design, technology and innovation, and generally, any solution that leads to a more impactful experience in life.   


In the past seven years, she has been fortunate to apply this mindset professionally to a number of exciting positions and collaborations with a mixture of interior design firms, independent designers, entrepreneurs and homeowners. With a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design, Marissa has worked as a commercial and residential interior designer, marketing director and graphic designer.    


In her free time, she enjoys navigating the live music scene, traveling and exploring nature, and immersing herself in all things creative and design-related, including fashion, film and fine art.
