Great grandfather, Frank Lloyd Wright, was a prolific writer with over a dozen autobiographical tomes and widely quoted. My mother, the late Oscar winning actress, Anne Baxter, had a best seller when she penned "Intermission" about her life in the outback of Australia with my father. (Yes, it is very weird to read about one's parents when you know the whole world got to read it too!)

I've been blogging and writing books for over a decade and contributed to three non-fiction books and written a few of my own. I focus on lifestyle, design, and daily motivation. Scroll here to see more (and you can snag "207 Designer Secrets for Savvy Homeowners" entirely free as my gift!)

Need an Expert (and Entertaining) Design Speaker?

Speaking has taken me coast to coast and internationally. It was fascinating to present "Design Trends" in China and have every word translated. Whether it's a professional association, a design trade corporation, a design or home furnishings market, or a consumer home show, there is nothing more rewarding than educating, entertaining, and empowering people to their full potential.

If you've got an event or conference where my knowledge and style may be a fit, get in touch. Oh, and you can see me in action HERE.
