Katherine Metz - Floor Plan Detective

Katherine Metz, the Floor Plan Detective, used to rearrange her neighbor’s gardens as a kid – without permission. When her mother sent her back to “fix” it, the neighbors always said it was much better. So began a lifetime dedicated to understanding the connection between the spaces we live in and the people we are.

Katherine is the go-to person if you want an answer that flows from H. H. Grandmaster Professor Lin Yun—having chronicled his teachings for 25 years and learned so much from him. With 33 years of experience, she has an innate knack for reading a floor plan and knowing the story of the house and it occupants, relating Feng Shui in a way that makes it relevant today.

Seeing a problem with new eyes, Katherine can show you how there is more to life than logic. By reading between the lines she has helped artists, movie stars, bank managers, CEO’s, designers and architects, professional poker players, race car drivers—people from all walks of life, all over the world.

She’s helped people get family members out of jail, find a job, find, sell and design houses, find a partner, and restore stability to their lives. There’s an art to reading a floor plan. By unveiling the reasons why life seems out of control, problems can be solved in a new way. Katherine truly brings mastery to the table, offering Feng Shui in a modern, accessible form, getting right to the heart of the problem.

She is passionate about beauty and color which is why you will find Feng Shui Storyboard such a delight. Combine that with an enquiring mind and a penchant for mystery – the Floor Plan Detective is born! Bringing all things unseen to light.

Carbo Films

Also on the case is Dora Medrano, owner and Executive Producer at Carbo Films, who has been a Feng Shui advocate and Katherine Metz groupie for years.

Carbo Films, founded in 1992 by Executive Producers Javier Carbo and Dora Medrano, has been at the helm of countless national and international campaigns for Fortune 500 companies. They have extensive experience filming all over the world, garnering numerous advertising awards along the way.

Dora’s first encounter with Katherine was over 16 years ago when she enlisted the Feng Shui expert for a consultation at her office. This was not only illuminating but also highly effective and influential. Since that time the two have forged a friendship and collaboration that is anchored by Katherine’s deep wealth of knowledge and caring and Dora’s sensibility and sense of aesthetics.

Both women are firm believers that beauty, in all its shapes and expressions, can change the world, and are on a mission to spread the benevolent effects of the teachings and wisdom that Katherine holds.

Jason Valdez, aka JSNV, is a freelance Director of Photography based out of Los Angeles. He shoots everything from documentaries to commercials to music videos. He loves “capturing moments.”

According to Dr. Keirsey’s book “Please Understand Me”, JSNV is an ENFJ. (I think we might need to look this up.)

He’s a 6’ Filipino, which does not equate to his 5’7” father and 5’ mother… hmmm

Katherine gets a laugh out of his colorful and funny array of socks.

When not shooting Instagram photos of food or his adventurous backpacking and hiking excursions, JSNV can be a hard person to track down. His shooting schedule has taken him home only 30 days in a period of 5 months. When friends and family catch him on the phone, the typical greeting starts with… “Where are you?”

We are lucky to have found him!
