S24 E9 – Special Guest Host Rachel Moriarty Meets Tym De Santo

Welcome! Today in The Lounge, guest host Rachel Moriarty sits down with Artist/Designer/Musician/Host and Entrepreneur Tym De Santo.

Tym is perhaps best known for his appearances on HGTV’s Design Star, however, Tym’s skills and abilities go well beyond his Design Star persona, (interior and exterior design) to fine artist, (sculptural furniture and photography) award winning singer/songwriter as well as a run at professional ski racing and adventure skiing. The common thread here, running like top stitch on a leisure suit lapel, a passion for using his wild imagination in a creative and inspiring way in everything he does!
