B-Roll Footage – Island of Bryan (here)
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 the US since 2007. Bryan’s TV journey started with the hit shows Disaster DIY, Canada’s Handyman Challenge and Leave it to Bryan. In 2010 Bryan was joined by his wife Sarah where the couple let viewers into their life with the filming of The House of Bryan Series, Bryan Inc. and HGTV Canada's #1 rated show, Island of Bryan. Bryan’s quick wit and easy-going personality have made him a huge hit with viewers leading to record breaking ratings.
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. His entrepreneurial spirit emerged at the age of 14 when he opened his own handyman business doing odd jobs for neighbours.
With so much of his youth invested in building, it’s hard to believe Bryan’s life almost took a completely different turn. After earning a dual degree in Political Science and Business at The University of Western Ontario, 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 traded in his tie for a tool belt and founded Baeumler Quality Construction.
Almost 2 decades, a beautiful family and numerous hit shows later, Bryan continues to tackle home renovation projects, be the spokesperson for various brand partners all while he and Sarah continue to expand the Baeumler brand. His drive, work ethic and focus have enabled him to achieve ongoing professional success while maintaining his family first focus and being a caring husband and father.

Photos of Megan (here)
When your life is simplified and decluttered, you can enjoy the small moments. Megan Golightly loves what she does and has been doing it for more than 14 years. She has a passion for problem-solving, organizing projects big and small, and working with families to see their homes and lives transformed. Her goal is to help others feel at ease in their home and eliminate the negative feelings people may have about clutter.
Megan holds a degree in psychology and her on-going study in neuroscience piqued her curiosity on how the brain works in relation to the spaces in our homes. It’s unhealthy to have nagging critical thoughts about the state of our homes. Whether or not we believe these words, our subconscious mind does. Deciding how and where to start can be paralyzing. Megan can help motivate, inspire and uncover the psychology of organizing.
Based in Calgary, Canada, Megan has travelled to work with clients in Victoria, Tofino, Vancouver, Kelowna, Edmonton, Toronto, Los Angeles, Boston, Denver, Palm Springs and Mexico. Two of her biggest passions are organizing and travel.
