“Fastidious, micro-managing, always looking for a problem to be solved.” Yes, these are things one might say about me.
For as long as I can remember, where others saw a room, I saw a project! I am never able to contain my excitement, insisting the owner move this, or buy that. I can’t help it. It’s in my genes. My grandfather was an inventor (problem solver) and my father was a salesman (solution provider.)
The thing is, I love interior design and I love tech; configuring the latter to look like the former is my jam.
Too often, unsightly wires, bulky consoles and awkward entertainment systems interrupt the flow or poetry of a space. It was my obsession with solving these conundrums that led me to a career in what I now term, “techorating.” In fact, for most of my career, I’ve been known as the “techorator.”
My passion for fixing other people’s tech and design problems inspired me to create simple-to-use systems for such notables as: Oliver Stone, Rob Lowe, Mario Lopez, Liev Schrieber, Kerry Washington, Josh Duhamel and Fergie to name a few.
I’ve enjoyed a successful run in media; my DIY show was called “Hollywood High Tech.” My in Demand show was called “Geared Up.” I appeared as tech expert and correspondent on many programs including: “TODAY”, “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “EXTRA”, ESPN, “The Wendy Williams Show” and LXTV, and I’ve been published in a variety of magazines. And In 2016, I launched my interior design company, Janna Robinson Designs.
With budgets ranging from three figures to seven, my firm has evolved from focusing solely on tech and design to interior design in general. This wider lens gives me insight into real-time lifestyle tricks and design imperatives; I make daily living aesthetically rewarding while also streamlined.
As brand ambassador for Microsoft, Verizon’s Go90, Intel, DirecTV, Phillips, LG’s Techorating program and Panasonic, I’ve learned that many design dilemmas—technology or not—can be resolved with a click. I’m eager to share my knowledge with the “world of the internet.”
At the end of the day, I’m a chic geek techie and a chic geek interior designer who loves to gab! If there’s a love language called sharing, that’s mine.
So, with that said, I can’t wait to love you all up with all I know—and continue to discover—in the world of lifestyle-tech and interior design.
