Arany Ortega

Project Manager: Interiors (Furniture/Decor)

Arany was raised in the central coast of Santa Barbara, California. Her interest in design and architecture developed from immersing herself in her city’s rich historical architecture and the beauty of its nature. As her interest grew, she began her studies at Santa Barbara City College, completing an interior design program where she had the privilege of learning both architecture and design. Eager to keep exploring design, Arany moved to the Bay Area, where she received a BFA in Interior Design from San Jose State University.   She started at S-Squared as an intern design assistant, becoming an employee in 2022.

Arany finds inspiration through her personal interest in music, art, nature and her personal experience growing up in two diverse cultures. She believes collaboration is key to creating harmonious spaces for people and the environment. In her spare time, she enjoys going on walks to the beach with her chocolate lab, exploring hiking trails, trying new restaurants, attending concerts, and spending time with her family and friends.
