CELEBRITY DESIGNER + MEDIA PERSONALITY
I am a designer and a storyteller. I believe that style and design are never just about “pretty things”. Rather, they are about courage and confidence and believing you can live a fabulous life, regardless of where you begin. My passion for speaking to people has taken me around the world sharing my vision and motivating others to do the same.
I started my career as a stockbroker on Wall St. before I was of legal drinking age and by a “lucky coincidence” became the Director of Business Development for a national contracting company in Miami, which led me to becoming a TV personality.
In the Fall of 2004, HGTV asked me to appear on a new show after learning I was a licensed General Contractor. Shortly thereafter, I became the go to home design contributor on NBC in Miami and a spokesperson on HSN. Since then, I have appeared on television over 1200 times from Fox News, MSNBC, Headline News, NBC’s Open House NY and VH1.
I started my first company with just $500. Since then, I’ve been featured in Vogue Italia, Elle DECOR, Better Homes, US Weekly, People, The Wall Street Journal, Consumer Reports, Lucky Mag, Shop Smart,The Robb Report, Yahoo, Modern Luxury and many more. I’ve been a style contributor for Huffington Post, Just Luxe and Hello Magazine in Pakistan/India. My designs sell in high end boutiques and websites like One Kings Lane and Gilt to Sears, Walmart and Costco.
I now live in New Jersey and Miami with my husband and two children, Brooke and Ford. Every morning, before my feet hit the floor, I say thank you three times.
Once just doesn’t seem enough.
I appreciate you stopping by. Feel free to send a note, I’d love to hear from you!
