What have you been up to since Design Star?
Since my appearance on Design Star, I have done a lot! Todd Davis and I are in regular contact. Last summer he asked me to come to California to help him with a substantial design project in Beverly Hills. I arrived in LA to no bags at the baggage claim and worked for two days with the clothes I arrived in (much like Design Star in a way). Todd and I spent 10 days banging out two dynamic children's rooms at the former estate of Ginger Rogers. It was a blast!

I have done some work with a TV production company as well. I could tell you, but then . . . so we will see what happens. I just completed illustrating a children's book, Oliver Wagglebones and The Watchers, which should be out later this summer. In addition to doing various interior projects, I did some work for the Orlando Habitat for Humanity Project. I was on their stage for three days at the Southern Women's Show demonstrating how to design big with small money. In addition, I'm heavily involved in my brother's musical career. Chris headlined one of Harrah's casinos in the Midwest for New Year's Eve 2009, and we are launching an album later this summer — whew! Enough about me. Say "hey" to all my fans, or those who think I was not their favorite, too!
