Bryan Baeumler HGTV'S "Island of Bryan"
Bryan doesn’t believe he’s put in an honest day’s work unless he gets his hands dirty! A natural-born teacher, the Gemini-award winning host has been educating and entertaining viewers across Canada and the US since 2007. Bryan’s TV journey started with the hit shows Disaster DIY, Canada’s Handyman Challenge and Leave it to Bryan. In 2010 Bryan was joined by his wife Sarah where the couple let viewers into their life with the filming of The House of Bryan Series, Bryan Inc. and HGTV Canada's #1 rated show, Island of Bryan. Bryan’s quick wit and easy-going personality have made him a huge hit with viewers leading to record breaking ratings.
Learning valuable tricks of the trade from his father, a meticulous aircraft engineer, Bryan spent his childhood summers building his family’s cottage from the ground up. His entrepreneurial spirit emerged at the age of 14 when he opened his own handyman business doing odd jobs for neighbours.
With so much of his youth invested in building, it’s hard to believe Bryan’s life almost took a completely different turn. After earning a dual degree in Political Science and Business at TheUniversity of Western Ontario, Bryan was headed towards a career of practicing law. Realizing he’d rather be renovating than being chained to a desk, his innate passion for building took over and he traded in his tie for a tool belt and founded Baeumler Quality Construction.
Almost 2 decades, a beautiful family and numerous hit shows later, Bryan continues to tackle home renovation projects, be the spokesperson for various brand partners all while he and Sarah continue to expand the Baeumler brand. His drive, work ethic and focus have enabled him to achieve ongoing professional success while maintaining his family first focus and being a caring husband and father.
