John gives us some information about him:
“design is my world, it’s part of my soul. Ever since I was young I loved studying how things were placed in a room, how the colors and textures played against each other ,how lighting affected the feel of a room etc. I’ve also always had a penchant for repurposing things, taking something and finding a whole new use for it than what it was originally intended for it, or taking something that had seen it’s better days and bringing it back to it’s original condition.I had always done deign/decorating projects for myself family,friends, but it was always a kind of hobby thing, although I always wished I could do it as a career.
Then, 6 years ago I was diagnosed with cancer and had to go through both chemotherapy, and radiation. It was at that time that I decided that life was way too short not to enjoy every minute of it, and I decided I would start working towards achieving the one thing I’ve always wanted in my life – a career in design/decorating. I went to school for design/decorating and I am working on making this the year I do something with it.
I’m currently trying to get my design service off the ground and I’m realizing that it’s much more involved than I thought it would be. However,that’s not deterring me from doing all I can to get there. That’s why I LOVE Olioboard so much, not only can I use my talent to express my knowledge and creativity, but it’s also been a great networking tool to reach others who have my same interests. I’ve met some of the greatest people on Olioboard and I look forward to going on there everyday.”
Thank you John~
