about our founder Genevieve Trousdale and Circaphiles
Leveraging 16 years of experience and successful collaborations with prestigious industry-leading designers including Michael Berman and Timothy Corrigan – Genevieve has coordinated residential projects up to 50,000 square feet from conception, through execution to installation. While cultivating strong relationships and connections internationally, she has, and continues to, carefully curate an impressive list of notable, trusted vendors and collaborators.
As a published designer, who has navigated all aspects of the ID world, Genevieve understands that the path from student to successful business owner is no walk in the park. Recognizing her challenges and successes have equally contributed to who she is as a savvy ID pro today prompted her desire to make it easier for those wishing to grow and rise in the industry. And her dream of creating a collaborative, encouraging design community is now a reality with Circaphiles. “If we rely on one another, we can lift up the industry’s reputation as a whole,” says Genevieve.
Genevieve invites professionals and students to Circaphiles to learn from what she’s been privileged to gain. This elite community offers members access to meticulously documented processes to run projects and valuable connections that make managing and growing an ID business infinitely easier.

Being fairly new to the LA area, the vendor directory has been a very useful resource. I was able to find a great art installer, whom I have since used on multiple projects. I like the idea of being part of something bigger; a group I can go to if I’m looking for a particular item/skill or just seeking advice. Having access to a vendor directory created by fellow designers is a great benefit.”
