There are three things you know about Samantha after you first meet her: she was born and raised in the greater Los Angeles area, she always has something planned, keeping boredom at bay, and she knows where to find the best Mexican food. Samantha's love for the city she grew up in is only matched by her passion for art and design. Her father's career in architecture helped foster Samantha's initial enthusiasm for art and eventually led her to her degree in art with an emphasis in Painting and Photography from San Diego State University. After graduating, her interest in art and design merged into a career in interior design. When she isn't gushing over furniture design and stone slabs, you can find Samantha checking out a band in Highland Park or hunting down the perfect plate of chilaquiles.
