A Gem in our Emerald City!

“Everything and everywhere starts with a story” Absolutely! The Inspired Design series excels at presenting the finest our Emerald City has to offer and the Creative Gems who play an instrumental role in shaping it. I learn something new each and every time I listen ! A perfect gift to share with someone who has just had the good fortune to move to Seattle as well share with those who have been fortunate to enjoy life here for years.

A visual listening experience!

Wow - what a great way to bring a visual concept like design into a pure auditory experience and make it so tangible! I can see these spaces just as well as hear them because Gina really brings the listener along so we see it all through her eyes!
