• Salon Today June 6th, 2008.

    Guess what, everybody! I am so delighted to share with you this news; the Gene Juarez Southcenter Salon design was awarded First Runner-Up in Salon Today's Salon of the Year contest! I was very happy with the results of my work on this project, in collaboration with Miller Hayashi Architects. But, I had no idea my design would draw so much attention! Working with Gene Juarez Salons and Spas, LLC has been a great experience for me. I am very excited to continue working with them in the future, and to explore salon design further as opportunities arise.

  • Japan Trip June 2nd, 2008.

    Have you ever been to Japan? One of my favorite things about the Pacific Northwest is the wide variety of people living here. Many have moved directly from another country. People like myself arrive every day, looking for a chance to start a better life. I am so happy since I moved to this country, and Seattle in particular feels like home to me. But, sometimes I do miss Japan. My recent trip back was the first in many years, so despite the business-minded cause for this trip, I was sure to make the most of my visit. Japan itself is also a beautiful country full of many different people, and I strongly recommend a visit to anyone who has the opportunity. Lucky for my readers, I have some great photos to share from my trip! Would you like to see the inside of a Japanese temple, or a bath house? Disneyland Tokyo? Just click here to see the journal of images from my trip.
