Designer Bio - Andrea Keller

Age: 36

Hometown: Los Angeles, California, and currently resides there

Profession: Owner of Berry/Keller Architects, Inc.

Education: Bachelor's degree from University of Pennsylvania, bachelor's degree in design and master's degree in architecture and design from UCLA.

Andrea knew she wanted to be a designer at age seven. Now 36, Andrea already has a successful design career, but feels there is no limit to her success.

Hailing from Los Angeles, she teaches restaurant design and exhibition design at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, as well as at University of Southern California. She also owns a very successful design firm in L.A., Berry/Keller Architects, Inc., which specializes in commercial and civic projects.

Andrea is half architect and half designer, and she has shared her expertise with the world in several television programs. Married with two boys, she is part Swiss, speaks four languages, and is in the process of learning two more.

Underneath all the proven accomplishments, Andrea is a self-proclaimed punk rocker, and she prefers to live by the fringe and often dyes her hair pink. She says she thrives on competition and even though she's made it this far, there is no slowing her down.
