Sunday, January 27, 2013

Puget Sound Energy’s upcoming Re-Energized by Design challenge has a contestant from Shoreline  - the Mitch Grafstein family.

Mitch and Stephanie Grafstein

Meet Mitch Grafstein

Mitch’s home screams potential. He and his wife Stephanie recently moved into a new home that is the perfect playground for experimentation with color and lighting. Stephanie’s history running a women’s clothing boutique means she knows style when she sees it. 
Mitch grew up in San Diego, Calif. and his wife Stephanie was raised in Olympia.  They moved to Seattle together in 2004 and haven’t looked back since.  Mitch works in business-to-business sales while Stephanie works as a personal trainer. Both of them work from home to varying degrees and are excited to make their home a more functional and sustainable place to live.

The six contestants being featured in Re-Energized by Design rose to the top during an intense selection process including submitting a video or photo entry, a public vote to select 10 finalists, and a final interview.

Re-Energized by Design contestants efforts are being documented by film crews and will be released as a web series starting in March. Each contestant also has the support of a dedicated design coach who will help them try to impress Re-Energized by Design’s panel of judges: society and events photographer Duell Fisher, 425 and South Sound Magazine editor Lisa Patterson, and radio personality Marty Reimer.
