2019 Show Information Below

Bryan Baeumler


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 in 23 different Countries Worldwide since 2007 on the hit shows Disaster DIY, Canada’s Handyman Challenge, Leave it to Bryan, House of Bryan, Bryan Inc.  and Island of Bryan. Bryan’s quick wit and easy-going personality have made him a huge hit with viewers on all of his home renovation shows. 

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.  After earning a degree in Political Science and studying Business, 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 attended construction courses at George Brown College, officially traded in his tie for a tool belt and founded Baeumler Quality Construction. 

A few kids and number of hit TV shows later, Bryan continues to tackle home renovation projects, be the spokesperson for numerous products and expand his growing businesses to include Baeumler Productions, Baeumler Approved and Baeumler Custom Cabinetry among others. Currently filming season 2 of Island of Bryan with wife Sarah, viewers watched season 1 in record numbers, while they restored a small abandoned resort on South Andros Island in the Bahamas! In Island of Bryan, we follow the story of this radical life event for the Baeumlers, from a dream of creating and running a luxury boutique resort in paradise, to the reality of leaving their friends, family and life behind to take on their most challenging build yet.  For more information about Bryan, visit bryanbaeumler.com.

Presentation Topic: Tales from the Island, lessons learned, and the REAL value hiding inside your home

Bryan will be appearing live on stage Friday, October 18, 2019 at 6PM and Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 1PM!
