Didiayer Snyder (Class of 1992) has definitely made a name for herself when it comes to design. For 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 with creating 3D murals for children's rooms and organizing friends' living spaces. Her fascination with organization turned into a full-time pursuit when she become a member of the American organizations, the National Association of Profesional Organizers (NAPO), and the National Study Group of Chronic Disorganization (NSGCD).
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 are what influence her passion for design. This, combined with her diverse skill set, (Didiayer is a carpenter, interior decorator, licensed home inspector, motivational speaker, philanthropist, and author) tweaked the attention of 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 Channels 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 seasons 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 several other television shows featured on channels across the nation, including The Marie Osmond Show.
Currently, Didiayer is the designer on Home Made Simple which airs on the Oprah Winfrey Network - OWN Network.
Over the years Didiayer has donated her carpentry skills to organizations such as Habitat For Humanity (in 2008 she was the national ambassador for Habitat For Humanity's National Builder's Blits), The Teen Project, and a non-profit that builds schools and supports teacher's in Haiti which Didiayer founded with her husband shortly after the devasting 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.

Ever since graduating from Citipointe Christain College, Didiayer knew she had to make a difference. Her education at Citipointe was a positive experience. She often refers to her speech and drama and art teachers as the women who made the greatest impact in her life, and credits their compassion and guidance to her belief in "all things are possible."
Didiayer currently resides in Florida with her husband Christopher Snyder, producer and lead singer of the band Standing In Waves, and their two beautiful daughters.
