MEET THE TEAM
M E M B E R S W O R K I N G O N Y O U R P R O J E C T
At DDLLC, we bill and manage all projects, as a team. No one person can create magic alone. So, we would like to introduce you to the amazing talent on your project. Throughout the process you will most likely receive emails from more than one member from our team. Because of this, feel free familiarize yourself with our roles/responsibilities, in case you have questions/concerns during the process. Any of us will be happy to assist you, with information and/or resources, as needed.
As the lead designer for all projects at DDLLC, it is my obligation to bring your imagination to life! Over time, I have learned that it is not only my job to come up with creative solutions to your dilemmas, but to create THE solution for YOUR home. By intensely listening and asking thoughtful questions, my objective is to read between the lines and to design spaces you never knew you deserved.

And for most projects, you and I will probably have the most contact. However, please note, I cannot manage this alone. Each of my team members will be vital in keeping us on track, in retaining multiple sets of eyes on our teams and vendors, and in keeping our processes organized and efficient.
I am pleased to make your acquaintance and I look forward to working on your project with you! ^_^
Jaileen "JJ" Sandoval
As the Admin Assistant, I will be in charge of properly managing your on-boarding process, along with formal contracts. By this point, you will mostly likely have already received messages from me. Additionally, it will be my job to govern the procurement and expediting of your purchases. Lastly, throughout your project's lifespan, I will assist in collecting, filing, and organizing your documents. Of course, most of this will be behind the scenes, however, I may pop up every-so-often with requests for additional information.
And as we get closer to your project's final installation, I will be sending weekly updates in order to keep you informed of our timeline.
Lastly, I am fluent in fluent in both English+Spanish, and I am comfortable assisting our clients, vendors, or tradesman in either language.
I'm sure I'll be in touch soon! :-)
ASSISTANT PROJECT MANAGER
Andrea "Andi" Quetzali
As the Assistant PM, you and I will most likely meet for the first time during your project's Trade Day. This will be our opportunity to get our tradespeople to the job site and to make sure everything will run smoothly for the design team and installation.
Once the project moves into our design department, I will most likely disappear until your actual product deliveries arrive--either with cabinetry, furniture, etc. From there, I will be the one to execute your project installation. With a degree in Interior Design and experience in the design departments of multiple larger design firms, I feel confident I can help supervise your project to completion!
Like JJ, I'm fluent in both English and Spanish and am comfortable communicating with all partners, in both languages.
I can't wait to get started!! ;-)
PHOTOGRAPHER / VIDEOGRAPHER
As the photographer for DDLLC, it is my job to capture the essence of what we create! I strive to offer visual insights into our team, our design processes, and our projects, through photography, videography, and social media. My intention is to give our clients insight into the authenticity of our personalities, our quirks, but also our accomplishments and successes!
Generally, my work is seen here on the website and via social media. However, when you get the chance, feel free to see what we've created on DuVäl's YouTube channel = Click Here. Also, you can watch my directorial debut for DD with the Designers Dish Full Episode!
Although they tend to keep me hidden, it is possible that you and I may meet around the time of the photoshoot of your beautiful new home, or possibly while filming some behind-the-scenes moments of your installation. I look forward to capturing your new space!
Currently, I am outsourced as DDLLC's go-to CAD Specialist for all things AutoCAD. As an architecural designer, I specialize in this computer-aided design and drafting software application. This program is used to draw and edit digital 2D designs more quickly and efficiently than we could by hand. Additionally, they're more accurate, created to-scale, and easily modifiable.
For projects including furnishings and/or remodeling, I'm generally involved at the inception. And I get to meet our clients, for the first time, during Trade Day. My job will be to gather all current conditions, as it relates to measurements, adjacencies, etc. For the most part, I work separate from the others involved, so don't mind me--I'll just be taking measurements, a few photos here-and-there, and making sure to provide DuVäl with the most accurate blueprints, layouts, and master plan, that will be the foundation to your beautiful home!
I'm sure I'll see you soon!
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT / FLOATER
Sara "The Wifey" Reynolds
I am currently part-time with DD, and mostly behind-the-scenes, to create a more comprehensive experience for our family of contractors, developers, architects, builders, and remodeling contracts. My main assignment is to construct a more streamlined approach to cabinetry installation by offering direct access to our manufacturer's highest-quality product, at best rates, and with the least amount of resistance.
When I'm not curating new in-house processes or trade partnerships...oh yeah, and keeping DuVäl on track...you may find me at Trade Day, checking in on installations, or working in the office.
Hopefully, we'll meet at some point. But if not, I'm always here to help keep the ship running smoothly--feel free to reach out! :-)
Well, hello there! I have the pleasure of working on the finances for the company, along with helping set strategic goals for our company's future trajectory. It is my goal to run an honest, ethical practice while helping the company remain accessible, yet still profitable. It takes a lot of work and effort to keep a clear focus on the financial health of a business. And thankfully, DuVäl is open to ideas and concerns that will maintain and benefit his business overall.
While I will be fully integrated into every aspect of the financials of the business, unfortunately, I will not get the pleasure of meeting our clients! It is truly the downfall of my position. But I do look forward to Marcus capturing the end results, whether in an image or on film.
I wish you all the best! You are in great hands!!

TRANSLATION: "I'm a ghangsta. I run the office. I do what I want to do."
WHAT HE ACTUALLY MEANS: "I work in the office and they don't let me come to the project sites because I will get into things and will not listen to what anyone tells me. However, if you ever come to the office, you may get to meet me!"
Again, we are all so excited to work on this project with you! We take this partnership very seriously (just not ourselves). And we are confident in our teamwork, our proven processes, and we look forward to creating a beautiful space for you, in the most seamless and transparent way, as we possibly can!
See you at Trade Day! ;-)
"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.." - Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NIV
