I have more than 15 years experience styling interiors, tabletop, still life and room set photo shoots for editorial, advertising and trade clients.
Decorating + Design
I create comfortable, timeless interiors using natural materials and furnishings from a mix of eras. My specialty is delivering a high end look on a tight budget.
I help interior design brands boost their signal strength and connect with new audiences through custom-tailored strategy and content solutions.
I am an experienced and engaging keynote speaker, panelist and seminar leader. I've taken the stage at home shows, the Interior Design Show, One of a Kind Show, BlogPodium, and more.
TV and Video
I have appeared in numerous TV and video segments for House & Home OnlineTV, The Steven & Chris Show on CBC, Breakfast Television on CityTV, and The Marilyn Denis Show on CTV. I marry light-hearted presentation with expert level knowledge to deliver segments on design advice, new products and trends, decorating tips, house tours and DIY decorating projects.
Writing + Editing
With more than 25 years magazine journalism experience and more than a decade writing for the web, I've got this writing thing down. I specialize in design, lifestyle and travel stories. I am founder and editor of The Design Edit blog.
