Otrada Design LLC started in January 2008. I wanted to share my creativity, utilize my design skills, and make people’s lives more beautiful. It’s really what I have wanted to do since the age of 12.

My design aesthetic is global, adventurous, and stylish. I truly believe enjoying a beautiful home, office, hotel room, or restaurant, is for everyone and good for the soul.
