Landscape Artist, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
Eduardo was born in East Los Angeles to immigrant parents from Mexico. He is the eldest of three children and part of four generations of family living in the L.A. area totaling more than 140 people. Throughout his life, he was involved in the gardens of his parents and grandparents, which gave him a deep appreciation for shape, texture, clean lines and the love of nature. His strong connection to his Mexican heritage gives him a connection to vibrant colors and rhythm in the garden as well as inside the home.
Before breaking ground as a star designer on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Eduardo was an accomplished keyboardist and percussionist. He was one of the youngest musicians to perform with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. But Eduardo's passion for the arts extends beyond playing music. While studying theatre arts at UCLA, he produced several hit musical theatre and comedy revues that toured throughout the U.S. Shortly thereafter, he headed south to Latin America, where he found fame as a star of music, television and videos. He starred in several worldwide-syndicated telenovelas (soap operas).
During his time in Mexico, Eduardo also found time to produce music and videos. Eduardo's partnership with BMG Latin produced his first solo album, "La Pasion," for which he was nominated for Premio Lo Nuestro's Artist of the Year, alongside Gloria Estefan and Ricky Martin. His representation of the United States at the International Music Festival at Vina Del Mar, Chile brought his appeal to a worldwide audience. Soon, Elle, Harper's Bazaar and Somos magazines featured the charming and down to earth Eduardo as one of Latin America's most eligible and gorgeous bachelors. At the turn of the millennium, Eduardo returned to the US and was a featured recording artist for Mythic Music Group, based in San Francisco. His first English language single, “I’ll Be There For You” garnered him rave reviews from Billboard magazine.
With the change of the music business came a change of career for XOL, who found himself spending time in the gardens of his family. By 2002, Eduardo had founded XOL:Design, an exterior design company, which quickly flourished. With this transition, Eduardo had successfully transferred his experience in musical composition and television production into the world of entertainment, lifestyle and design. Now, in his fifth season as a co-star of ABC’s hit TV show Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Eduardo’s compositions are on display for millions of people a week to view.
In addition to the monthly column that he authored in People en Español and the weekly blog for AOL LATINO, guests appearances on television and his countless newspaper and magazine articles, Eduardo has become a respected and coveted voice in the Hispanic and English language markets.
Eduardo recently partnered with The Occasion Group to design a line of Quinceañera and specialty invitations that support one of his brands called 15A, aimed at the young and emerging Quinceañera market. Further, Harper Collins imprint, RAYO published Eduardo’s first book in April, 2007 titled Home Sense in both English and Spanish, worldwide, and his second book, Extreme Entertaining Made Simple will be published by the Penguin Group this year. This book will be one of the few lifestyle entertainment titles to include a CD of originally composed and licensed music, befitting various events.
When not working on television, writing books, designing, or producing music, Eduardo works with several charities.
