FLOYD ALBEE

Floyd studied Interior Design at CSULB and then attended the Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles. He went on to work at Frank Gehry and Associates on the Disney Concert Hall and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. During that time Floyd met a film director who hired him to remodel his Venice bungalow. The director explained how similar Production Design is to Interior Design and Architecture. This introduced him to a 25 year career in the film industry. Floyd has done projects for TV, film and commercials worldwide with many Academy Award winning directors. As a fourth generation Californian born in Carmel with many relatives in the Bay Area, Floyd felt a strong connection with Northern California. He recently moved his family to Mill Valley from Los Angeles.
