Speaker Bio

Jeff Wilson grew up helping to build the super-efficient, passive solar home his father designed in the 1980s. He went on to become a carpenter and remodeler and to host nearly 200 episodes on HGTV and the diy network. His latest on-camera role finds him extolling the virtues of train travel in "Real Rail Adventures" on public television (check local listings in April for the debut episode covering Switzerland). Wilson lives with his wife and two daughters in a perpetually half-renovated home in a small college town in southeastern Ohio.
