John DeSilvia is a tough-as-nails Brooklyn native and a former union carpenter. A licensed contractor, John owns a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering and Constructions Management from Pratt Engineering School. After graduation he learned the ropes with two of the world’s leading construction firms, then took the plunge and opened his own company, Brooklyn's Design Tech.
He began his television career after being approached by a friend who owns a production company. He took the opportunity to showcase his talents while helping prospective homeowners achieve their dream home. With a natural flair and talent, John was offered to host Under Constructions, where he demolished, built, renovated and refurbished projects all over the Big Apple. His success brought him more gigs, where he moved on to hosting more construction related shows, including Rescue My Renovation and Under Construction.
John currently resides in Brooklyn, with his wife and twin girls.
