Why I should win Design Star:
I think I am definitely relatable to HGTV viewers. I’m not stuffy by any means and you won’t see me using technical design mumbo jumbo. I would like to have a show that is pure design entertainment. You will always see me goofing around, laughing, joking and delivering some funny off-the-wall comment. That’s who I am. I have a passion for life and for design. I believe that it’s important to have fun in whatever you do. I make it my daily mission to smile more and laugh often. Happiness is important to me, and I would like to bring that to those I design for. Being HGTV’s Design Star would give me the opportunity to touch the lives of many families and bring a little more happiness into their lives.
