Adar Kirkham Bio

DIY designer Adar Kirkham is the host of HGTV's Freestyled. Born and raised in New Jersey, her innate passion for the creative arts began at a young age. Studying dance for more than 18 years — including ballet, hip-hop, jazz and modern dance landed her as the Entertainment Manager and Choreographer for NBA’s Brooklyn Nets dance team for seven seasons. While transitioning from dancer to choreographer, Adar simultaneously tended to her other passion: furniture refinishing and interior design. Turning her hobby into a business in 2016, Adar started her DIY furniture refinishing company Tweak It Studio. Today, Adar’s DIY business is thriving and her hope is to inspire others to get creative, make less waste and revitalize the furniture around them to beautify their own environments.
