Why I should win: Because I love sharing and working through great design with an audience.

My secret weapon: My glue gun.

My design style boils down to: California flip-flop-wearing, chenille-blanket-throwing, natural and sophisticated.

Three favorite styles:
1. Barn/western

When not working, I'm: Riding my horse or skiing in Mammoth Lakes, where I have a second home.

Something you'd never guess about me: That I want to have great financial wealth so I can fund and further the causes I'm passionate about.

Childhood dream: To make the world a more beautiful place.

My dream vacation: A beach in Baja, California, under a palm tree on the sand after body surfing for hours.

Four words that describe me: Passionate, intense, dedicated and hot.

If my life were a sitcom, it would be: The OC, okay, it's not really a sitcom, but every person [including the locale] is the life I come from.
