I have had a very full life and have been blessed with opportunities that make up who I am today.
Born and raised in California, I have also lived in Hawaii, New York, Colorado, Utah, and Ontario, Canada.
My passion for the theatre has allowed me to both act on stage and take on the role as a musical theatre director for over 30 years. Through that period of my life, I learned all aspects of the theatre, including background and graphic design, stage and lighting construction, plus so much more.
This led to the next stage in my life… Home renovations and interior design. As a designer, I love to create and bring to life the very essence of what life is all about. My Motto: "Creating the Life You Love" can be found incorporated within everything I do.
I was also the owner and designer of a home renovations and decor store in the mountains of Southern California for 9 years. There we would design and renovate homes and cabins for clients such as Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman). We closed the business in 2016 to pursue our Fire Investigation business and have been traveling and working 5 states, conducting origin and cause studies for all types of fires. I am currently a Fire Tech, with certifications in Fire Investigations, Hazmat, and Evidence Collection, and currently working towards my certification as a Certified Fire and Explosions Investigator.
When we are not studying fires, we are renovating our cabin home and properties, which has led me to my latest venture.....My new YouTube channel, Home & Cabin with Liz Rayen, where I share our renovation projects, decorating and organizational tips, as well as landscaping and product reviews and recommendations.
I am constantly on the creative path with many projects in the designing stages which are soon to be released.
I am truly grateful you visited my blog today. May you always be strong and set your path in "Creating the Life YOU Love"
Feel free to drop me a line or two and say hi! I would LOVE to hear from you!
