Professional Organizer

occupational therapist

certified environmental access consultant

I founded Vireo Home to develop functional, inspired spaces for living and working. You won’t find my unique blend of organizing, decorating, and accessibility services anywhere else. 

I come to organizing from occupational therapy. My experience helping adults with disabilities regain function and independence in their homes taught me to see the potential in a space to improve how people can get things done.

 Organizing allows me to solve problems and streamline things for other people, which I find deeply rewarding. My background also includes a degree in psychology and a lifelong practice of art.

I strongly believe our surroundings affect our well-being, and that makes it important to get right.

I live in Chicago with my wife and if you have a large, friendly dog, I will try to take it home with me.


What’s a vireo?

Vireo can mean “green; verdant” but also “lively and flourishing” in Latin, and helping people flourish is the heart of what I do, The name vireo also refers to a family of songbirds that tend to be olive and grey-ish in color.
