My name is Seth, and this page serves as a portfolio of some of my architectural, interior and product design work.
Thanks for taking a look.
I grew up with an interest in mechanics… taking things apart, putting them together, fixing
things, and breaking more things. I have a long history in the construction industry; I worked as a foreman electrician for many years, and then successfully operated my own electrical contracting business for three years. I then put my tools aside to take my current job as an electrical designer and associate engineer, where I enjoy designing lighting and electrical systems for architectural projects.
As one who takes interest many genres, both creative and mechanical, I found a niche among an art/faith community for several years, where I helped facilitate large-scale artistic liturgies with my wife, an art professor. In 2007 I began a transition into the field of architecture and interior design. In addition to my electrical business, I have worked as a freelance interior designer for over two years. I recently acquired a degree in Interior Design from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in downtown Los Angeles, and became a member of ASID.
Through this program I was able to design an award-winning light fixture, and an exciting chair that was manufactured and displayed in numerous places in the greater LA area. These endeavors legitimized my passion for designing exciting furniture pieces and products. I now find great fulfillment in the interior design field, taking full use of my creative urges and long-time construction experience.
I take enjoy many facets of design – residential, commercial, architecture, and furniture
design. I speak the language of modernism fluently.
I live in sunny Santa Paula, California, where my wife and son and I spend our afternoons lounging below our fruit trees.
Manufactured in January 2009, this chair has been displayed in numerous settings including the Pacific Design Center. It features two seating orientations: it flips over to become a rocking chair.
This light fixture design earned an Honorable Mention in a national light fixture design contest.
This public art/bike rack design was submitted to the City of Ventura.
