How has your life changed since Design Star?
It's great. It has put me in a different arena of clients and a magnitude of projects.
Did you participate in any events or get a specific job because of the show?
Yes, I was able to lend my celebrity to a charity close to my heart, Habitat for Humanity. I was able to secure funds from IKEA and Target to make one family's dreams come true.
Have you kept in touch with fellow contestants?
Of course! Jen, Torie, Lonni, Nathan and Antonio. Jen and I have worked on a project in Sarasota. Nathan is showcasing my furniture in his new store, MESH. Torie has called in on a hospital visit I was making to a young girl name Maddy, a fan of Design Star, who has Cystic Fibrosis.
