“Everyone can afford an interior designer.” So says Joseph M. Matthews 3d, model, business owner and all-around good guy. “Most people have the idea that you have to be rich to use an interior designer. They think that unless you make over $200,000 a year, you have to do it all yourself.” But according to the owner of Matthews Interior Design, working with a designer might actually save you money, as he can get items for cost, not to mention the benefit of working with a design professional. A board member of the Delaware Valley Legacy Fund, Matthews is also the chair for “Toy,” the annual holiday toy drive that raises funds for DVLF and collects toys for kids living with HIV. Mark your calendars early for this event, Dec. 4 at the Marketplace Design Center.

“You spin me right round, baby, right round like a record baby ... ” These lyrics come to mind whenever I think of DJ Freddie Tek. A longtime figure on the LGBT music scene, the affable music meister has been keeping people on their toes for close to four decades. I took a beat to chat up the mix master known for his hearty, “Hey, hey, hey!”
