Samantha Bede Thompson has been working as an architectural designer in the Los Angeles area since 2003.  Before starting SBT Home Design, she gained experience both at a large-scale commercial architectural firm as well as a successful residential design-build firm, where she managed the design department as Vice-President of Design.

She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Washington, where she graduated with honors.  She received her graduate degree from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles, where she graduated magna cum laude with a degree in design.  Samantha was also one of the founding members of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), Los Angeles chapter.

Samantha’s design expertise includes Auto-Cad computer design, 3-D space rendering, hand drawing, quick sketching, and material selection.  Additionally, her many years at a design-build firm, as well as her start-to-finish projects at SBT Home Design, have given Samantha an extensive background in construction management.
