We recently chatted with Circaphiles ambassador & inspiring designer
Damour Drake is a combination of Maryline Damour and Fred Drake, a duo that came together to offer their clients interior design and construction. Damour, after working for years in marketing, business development, and public relations, decided to return to school to study interior design at Parsons The New School for Design. Originally from Haiti, she has been actively involved in interior design projects held in Haiti since the earthquake in 2010. Lately, she has been working on developing a vocational school in Léogâne, Haiti focused on teaching safer building techniques and practices for the construction industry.
1. What did you wish you knew when you started your design firm?
You should be obsessed with design if you have your own company because it is like having a child (no real-time off). Luckily, I am!
