Our new plants are in! We are strong proponents of Environmental Psychology and it plays a big role in our designs. Thanks to Rocket Farms, our vision has finally been fulfilled. They provided us with over 200 plants to line the beams in the lounge and help us bring the outdoors in. If you are interested in getting plants for your own space, contact Jason Kamimoto at Rocket Farms. He so knowledgable and amazingly helpful!

Our sustainable practices support ecological, human, and economic health and vitality.
I have spent the last eight years of my life transforming small and medium sized business from loss to profit. With over 35 years in the recruitment industry, most of my success can be attributed to understanding people and providing them with what they need to be successful.
In the workplace, people are having trouble getting sh#t done. According to Fast Company, in the United States alone, over $588 billion is lost each year from the effects of workplace distractions. Distractions elevate stress levels, cause unwarranted fatigue, create work/life imbalance and, more important than any other issue, are a leading factor in people losing control over their work environment and lives. These result in unhappiness, reduced motivation, and higher turnover in addition to missed work goals.
