D.I.Y., Cleaning And Organizing, Building And Decorating
  • Dina is a self-described "maximalist" who loves to turn dull, lifeless spaces into bright and whimsical dwellings that celebrate life.
  • She loves D.I.Y. projects and looks for any excuses to bust out her $26 Black + Decker Jig Saw to custom alter furniture and other decor for her apartment.
  • Always eager to keep things tidy, Dina is constantly on the lookout for any new cleaning and organization hacks that make her life more efficient.


Dina's passion for the written word is as fierce as her passion for keeping a cozy, happy home. As a trained journalist and masterful storyteller, her career began as a local news reporter and editor covering the New York City suburbs for Patch.com, Daily Voice, and, her own website, Westchester Woman. She later decided to pursue writing lifestyle content full-time and has penned home, garden, DIY, cleaning, and organization content for sites like Reader's Digest, Family Handyman, and Home Hacks. Throughout her career, she's interviewed world-renowned architects, home staging designers, muralists, and other experts and artisans to create informative and compelling pieces for her readers.


Dina has a master's degree in journalism from Iona University in New Rochelle, NY, and a bachelor's degree in journalism from Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry.
