Nominated for an "Outstanding Service Show Host" Emmy Award in his debut season, Kevin O'Connor is the newest member of America's favorite home improvement team on This Old House and Ask This Old House. In addition, he joins DIY Network’s Amy Matthews as cohost of This New House, which explores revolutionary smart houses. Kevin got his start working on job sites with his father, a civil engineer. Later, while renovating his first home with his wife, he sought advice from the Ask This Old House experts. Much to his surprise, the Ask This Old House call served as his first screen test to serve as the show’s new host. Before home improvement television, Kevin worked in finance.
