Jason Cameron

Jason Cameron from DIY Network's hit series Man Caves and Desperate Landscapes

On the outside, Jason Cameron looks like a TV star. But on the inside, he’s all handyman and all business. Watch him work and it quickly becomes apparent this licensed contractor really knows his stuff, especially when it comes to his own personal passions: home improvement and landscaping. Jason says he recently even gutted his own home and completely revamped the backyard. Now he’s putting his extensive hands-on expertise to work for DIY Network building, landscaping, hardscaping and more.

A native of Toledo, Ohio, Jason worked his way through Northern Michigan University as a carpenter, and then moved to the Northern Jersey/New York City area where he continued his carpentry and general contracting business. Catch Jason putting all his tools to work on DIY Network’s Desperate Landscapes, Man Caves and Sledgehammer.
