Didiayer Snyder has definitely made a name for herself when it comes to design. For well over a decade, she has successfully transformed neglected and dull rooms into functional and chic living spaces.
Early in life, Didiayer's talent for art and design became apparent when her pastime of painting and sculpting turned into a means of income. Garage sales and flea markets served as her creative playground where she discovered that one person's trash proved to be a young designer's treasure. With design on the mind, Didiayer started to experiment in creating 3D murals for children's rooms and organizing friend's living spaces. Her fascination with organization turned into a full-time pursuit when she became a member of (NAPO) National Association of Professional Organizers and (NSGCD) National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization. By teaching others to eliminate clutter and get organized, Didiayer has helped countless self-proclaimed "pack-rats" to stay the course of functional living.
On meeting Didiayer, it's easy to see why she has become so successful. Her personality and zest for life is what influences her passion for design. All this, combined with her diverse skill set, (Didiayer is a carpenter, interior decorator, licensed home inspector, motivational speaker, philanthropist and author) attracted television executives.
One of the networks that took notice of her knowledge and her background as a licensed home inspector was the Travel Channel. In 2005, she became the host of the Travel Channel's hit show, Amazing Vacation Homes. It was the perfect role for this building buff.
ABC soon after requested to meet Didiayer and in 2007 they invited her to join the Emmy Award Winning show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. After three season's on EMHE, Didiayer went on to work on another Emmy Award Winning program - Clean House, on the Style Network. Her design styles have also been featured on the Nate Berkus Show and The Marie Osmond Show, and her organizational skills have been put to good use on the Giuliana and Bill Show on the E! Network.
Over the years, Didiayer has donated her carpentry skills to organizations such as Habitat For Humanity (in 2008 Didiayer was the national ambassador for Habitat for Humanity's National builder's blitz), The Teen Project, and C.H.M.I (a non-profit that builds schools and supports teacher's in Haiti) which Didiayer founded with her husband shortly after the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010).
Didiayer has many passions, especially making a difference and changing lives through design - which has definitely become a life mission for this native Australian. She currently resides in southern California with her family, who support her devotion of giving back through the art of design.
