A native of Greenwich, Connecticut, Eddie is a 30-year old jack of all trades. He has already established a name for himself on television, as well as the catering and publishing industries. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America and began his career as a food editor on Martha Stewart Living. This was followed by becoming the Associate Design Director for all of the Food Network’s in-house productions. Eddie continued to refine his entertaining and decorating skills by running his own catering company for two years. He then made the move to the publishing industry by producing Weekend Shopper, a monthly article which tackles his travels in flea markets. He became an Associate Decorating Editor at House Beautiful as well, and then returned to Martha Stewart as the Senior Style Editor of Living. His vast range of talents continues to impress many. His work in decorating, food and flower styling has led him to perpetually strive to create elegant stories that will cater to the variety of people’s tastes and budgets. For Eddie, interior design is a crucial part of lifestyle that should be comfortable and timeless, and will not survive without beauty.
Eddie is one of the thirteen designers competing in the second season of Top Design. The BravoTV game show is hosted by the stylish model and designer India Hicks, who is joined by fashion designer Todd Oldham. Oldham was the previous host of the show, but will serve as mentor to the contestants of the second season. Last season’s judges, Jonathan Adler, Kelly Wearstler and Margaret Russell, will be returning. Top Design is looking for one talented designer who will demonstrate the most flair and versatility in the challenges. Eddie is vying for a $100,000 cash prize, as well as a four-page spread in Elle D?cor magazine.
