Danae used to have a pet duck named Chubakins, and she’s also been in the studio audience for Judge Mathis several times. Chubakins, however, did not attend (more of an SNL kind of duck.) As an Interior Designer, Danae works with the HK design team to develop, coordinate and document designs from Schematic Design through Construction Administration phases. Danae is continually investigating how people interact with space, and the power of the built environment to impact interactions, mood and productivity. Danae graduated from Indiana University with a B.S. in Merchandising, and went on to achieve a Master of Interior Design from Indiana University. From drawing and painting to cooking and baking, she’s an artistic person no matter what the medium.
