Meet Jason Cameron

As the host of DIY's Desperate Landscapes, it's no wonder Jason is so passionate about home improvement.

Contractor Extraordinaire

Ever since he was a kid growing up in Toledo, Ohio, Jason has been finding ways to help people with their homes. 

Savvy Business Man

His first business was a window washing service he started at the age of 13. He even sold the business to a friend when his family moved to Michigan!

TV Star

Before joining the DIY family, Jason could be spotted making appearances on hit TV shows, like an episode of Sex and the City, where he played the uncredited "man with big arms."

Fitness Guru

And speaking of big arms, did you know Jason has been a personal trainer for over 15 years?

Expert Trainer

He specializes in strength and conditioning and has trained all kinds of people, from beginners to college athletes. 

Strike a Pose

He's even been a spokesperson and fitness model for Men's Health magazine.

Ready for His Closeup

You can also find him in GQ, Maxim, Men's Fitness and on the cover of Muscle Media.

Animal Lover

But despite those bulging guns, we know Jason's just a big ol' softie.

Say "Hi" to Hippo

We've even got proof to back it up. 

Costume Change

Though this S.W.A.T. vest getup is actually just a fun themed outfit for an episode of DIY's Man Caves, Jason did receive a Bachelors of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from Northern Michigan University. No wonder the look works so well!

After-School Job

Jason worked his way through college as a framer and construction worker.

Lookin' Good Jason

So, it's no wonder he's so comfortable on the job site.

Floor Plans

Once out of college, he became the manager of a local flooring company.

Always a DIY Man

But being a hands-on type of guy, Jason would sometimes take on the job of installing the floors himself!

A Loving Home

As a licensed contractor and landscaping genius, it will come as no surprise that in his free time, Jason loves working on his own home, which he shares with his wife Maryanne.

Free-Time Fun

He also loves playing sports, reading, hiking, mountain biking, and of course, going to the gym. 

He's Got Big Plans

But most of the time, Jason can be found on the set of Desperate Landscapes making a lucky family's landscaping dreams come true. 

Carry On

It's no doubt those impressive outdoor makeovers require a lot of hard work. 

(Jack) Hammer Time

One day, Jason might be removing uneven concrete stairs with a jackhammer. 

Pine Tree Chainsaw Massacre

And the next day, he's using a chainsaw to cut down an old pine tree.

Drilling Up a Storm

And then he's building a brand new porch in a single day!

Jack of All Trades

Basically, Jason's got to be ready for anything at any time. 

Dream Job

But let's face it, despite all the hard work, hosting Desperate Landscapes is a pretty fun gig. 

He's a Busy Guy

Jason is also a host on DIY's Man Caves, creating rooms that are just as fun to work on as they are to hang out in.

Cardboard + Kids

There may be an occasional "boy cave" thrown in, too. This one was a cardboard-themed room. How cool!

Why, I Oughta!

And if creating amazing themed rooms wasn't cool enough, sometimes Jason gets to work with awesome celebrities, like funny man Kevin Smith... 

Playing on the Job

...and NFL kicker Chris Kluwe.

Best Friends Forever

But let's not forget about Jason's favorite celebrity friend: his very own co-host Tony Siragusa. Can't you just feel the love?

The Perfect Pair

This is one duo that knows how to have fun!

Can't Get Enough?
