Alex Ion | Founder & Executive Editor
Alex started Decoist
some three years ago, as a passion. With time, things have changed and
Alex became more and more obsessed with fancy interiors and contemporary
designs. Hence why all his attention today goes to running the magazine
— deciding what gets published, ensuring that our fans on Facebook,
Twitter or Pinterest are getting their daily dose of inspiration, and
from time to time, writing.
Passionate to travel the world, Alex has seen quite a few places and
drew inspiration from each and every one of them. When he has free time,
he loves to play tennis or ski, hang out with his friends or cook some
of his special dishes.
Alex has made it his missions, to push Decoist right through the top.
He also vowed to never talk in third person again — although he
realizes how much fun it is.

Fred Hoot | Chief Editor
has been writing online for a very long time, and has been in the
business with Alex for a few years now. He’s a geek at heart, with lots
of experience in the tech field, but has been quickly won over by the
stories that get covered daily on Decoist. He’s the other mastermind
behind what gets published, when and how.
When Fred is not writing, he stays fit by being dragged by his two
labs in pursuit of cats and squirrels. Fred is also an accomplished
musician (trumpet) and plays in a Funk band. The founder of Worship Jam
Ministries, Fred also ministers to musicians.

a very early age Momina Khan discovered her passion and talent for
rearranging furniture and indulging herself with interior design. Over
the years this passion has only intensified as well as her education and
calling in creative writing. As a freelance writer Momina finds Decoist
a perfect environment to creating art with words on the art of DIY
design. It’s her hope that she can motivate others to recreate their
homes into spaces the whole family will enjoy!

them on her own she can be found writing some more, reading, talking,
laughing and soaking up time with her dear friends and family over
delicious home made food not made by herself.
