Laurie March and Dan Pashman Bio

Laurie March's flair for home improvement and all things homeownership began at three –furnishing and remodeling her first wood dollhouse, and when she managed her first design/build –her father constructed her an enviable fort in the backyard.

Her passion for home improvement and remodeling were unearthed while working for Paige Hemmis of Extreme Makeover Home Edition and remodeling her own 1920’s Spanish style home. Seeing the challenges firsthand, the entrepreneur took over and in 2005 Laurie founded Improvemental, a project management and design firm that has been a recognized fixture in the Los Angeles remodeling scene - completing over 50 homes for a highly discerning who’s who of writers, producers, and executives in LA.

Laurie has been acknowledged as ‘40 under 40’ in Residential Remodeling by Professional Remodeler Magazine, and has been featured in Lucky Magazine, Design*Sponge and USA Today.

Today Laurie’s newest venture has led her to the Scripps Network as the personality driving HGTV Remodels’ mission to talk about real remodeling projects across the country, and as a host of ‘Good To Know’ on CookingChannelTV.com.

Dan Pashman is still amazed that he's managed to make a job out of doing what he loves--eating. He's the creator and host of the James Beard Award-nominated food podcast The Sporkful (motto: It's not for foodies, it's for eaters.) He also hosts the Cooking Channel web series Good to Know and is a regular contributor to NPR and Slate. He's currently working on his first book all about eating, to be published in fall 2014 by Simon & Schuster. Connect with Dan on Facebook and Twitter.
