Didiayer Snyder, born and raised in Australia, headed for Americas west coast in 1998, when she officially made the move to Los Angeles. Having worked as a model since her teens, this leggy Aussie quickly found herself on designer runways within weeks of her arrival.
Modeling gave me a platform to explore the world, explains Didiayer (phonetically pronounced Dee-Dee-Air), but it was never the runways or designer clothes that held my attention. It was the people I would meet in various towns and villages. The different cultures I would immerse myself in, and the surrounding environmental issues I would face. Thats what really held my attention and it still does, even more so today.
Indeed, the environment has held Didiayers attention for some time. Back home in Australia it was custom to go walk about and learn how to live off the land. A Royal Ranger for seven years, Didiayer became highly skilled in bushmans law and eco-travel. Building shelters, finding drinking water, and cooking dampa (Australian camp bread) became the foundation on which she first developed her love for the planet. When you spend time truly living off the land, you gain more respect for it. It was a natural step for me to want to support it. As I educated myself more about the things we humans do to harm the planet, I knew I had to step up.
Didiayer has been supporting the environment by helping others in need. A long time volunteer with Habitat For Humanity, Didiayer has contributed her carpentry skills and knowledge on sustainable living to communities all across the nation. In 2008, she was their national ambassador and worked along side construction companies to build 280 energy efficient homes in a week. When it comes to helping people get in touch with the environment, she uses her professional organizational skills (she is a member of NAPO and the NSGCD) and educates homeowners on how to live an environmentally conscious clutter free life.
Today, Didiayer continues to educate herself and reads everything she can get her hands on, as well as, meeting with people in various fields to educate herself and others on how to lessen their own carbon footprint. I didnt start out thinking I was becoming an activist. But I realized the moment you open your mouth and tell others what they can do; you become part of the solution, an advocate. Now I wear that badge with honor.
With all the interesting facets of Didiayer, it wasnt long before she approached her agent Karen Wang-Lavelle and shared her vision on how she could merge her passion for the environment with her growing career. One of the networks that took notice of her knowledge and her background as a licensed home inspector (Didiayer is a graduate of Ashworth College in carpentry and interior decorating, and an honor student in Formal Arts in Australia) 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. They later used her as the host of The Worlds Best Beaches and Off the Beaten Path. ABC soon after requested to meet Didiayer and in 2007 they invited her to join the Emmy Award Winning show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Each week as a cast carpenter, I share how people can be more conscious with their design and lifestyle choices, explains Didiayer. Its an honor to be the shows green voice. And, since Im the ultimate do-it-herselfer, the hat that I wear for the show is one that Ive worn for a long time. After three seasons on EMHE, Didiayer went on to work on another Emmy Award Winning program - Clean House on the Style Network. Week after week Didiayer transformed cluttered homes into affordable living spaces as well as helping homeowners get organized for good! Her many design styles have been showcased on the Nate Berkus Show and her organizational skills on the Giuliana and Bill Show on the E Network.
Besides a great eye for interior design, Didiayers background in fashion mixed with her world travels caught the eye of MGM Resorts International. In 2010 Didiayer was asked to be the face/spokeswoman for the fortune five hundred company hosting their in-room and utube travel show MlifeTV. Today between showing her Award Winning Web-Emmy program MlifeTV, Didiayer enjoys spending time at her beach home in Southern California with her family.
