Meet the New Designers and Carpenters

John Gidding

A Yale graduate from Turkey, Giddings design experience has no bounds - ranging from residential and institutional architecture to landscape and urban design. Beginning his career as a fashion model, he quickly forayed into television. When he's not dishing out design tips on the small screen, he is a partner at Atlanta-based design firm, Gidding&Spencer, which services residential and commercial clients around the country.

Kahi Lee

As an interior designer, television personality, and author, Kahi Lee is a triple threat. Her first book was released to critical acclaim in 2011, and her interior design company, Kahi Lee, Inc. features an impressive list of celebrity clientele. When she's not conquering the world through her pen or paint brush, she enjoys time with her husband and kids in Los Angeles.

Sabrina Soto

As a renowned lifestyle expert, Sabrina covers everything from home decor, design to food and fashion. Working steadily as the host of a variety of design shows, she made her foray into the lifestyle space as Target's Style Expert for Home, leading to her collaboration with the brand in her home collection available in-stores. She shares her tried and true design tips on her blog, Casa & Company, which covers everything from authentic recipes, DIY tutorials to looks for less and of course, all things home. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her young daughter, Olivia.

Brett Tutor

By the age of 15, Brett was apprenticing as a carpenter and a home inspector under his grandfather. After many travels including training mixed martial arts in Hawaii, volunteering at orphanages in Africa, and working as an adventure guide in Oregon, Brett began his home inspection and contracting business in Austin. In his free time, you can find Brett bettering himself in any of his many passions from carpentry, surfing, fly fishing, scuba diving, guitar, song writing and he is always on the lookout for his next adventure.

Joanie Sprague

Although Joanie may be best known to the public as the first runner up on America's Next Top Model cycle 6, her passion for carpentry led her to popular design shows where she got to flex her renovation muscles. Joanie got her first taste of construction and handyman skills as a child, helping her dad around the church. She loves to get her hands dirty and jump right into exciting construction projects; her goal is to help other women tackle projects at home by themselves.
