CLINT HARP, HGTV’s Fixer Upper and Magnolia Network’s Restoration Road
Clint Harp is a husband, dad, carpenter, tv personality, actor, business owner, podcast host, author, and public speaker who’s on a journey which he never could have dreamed up. He could be found for all 5 seasons of the HGTV hit show Fixer Upper as the dumpster diving, reclaimed wood loving carpenter building whatever renowned designer Joanna Gaines could dream up.
It was a pretty remarkable place for him to be considering that he and his wife, Kelly, decided in 2011 that Clint would quit his comfortable job in medical sales so they could start their own company, and Clint could go for his dream of building furniture for a living. Nothing else was on the radar. Little did they know what was ahead!
Fast forward a decade plus, and Clint has found himself on multiple tv shows, owning a business for 12 years serving people all over the country, creating and hosting a podcast, authoring a book, acting in a movie, speaking at home shows, conferences, and conventions inspiring and motivating thousands to dream beyond what they think is possible, representing many national and worldwide brands, and now hosting his own show Restoration Road with Clint Harp on the Magnolia Network.
For the last 4 years and counting Clint has traveled the country telling the stories of amazing structures which are close to destruction and of the people with the skills and guts to bring them back to life. Along the way he has made it a priority in each episode to dive into the history, good or not so good, of not only the structures, but of the people and businesses and stories that make up each place he visits. Restoration Road with Clint Harp on the Magnolia Network aims to tell stories and inspire people everywhere to look at the things we think might be too difficult to revive and jump right in. Clint’s humble beginnings in Atlanta, GA, and the road that led him to where he is today are what fuel him to forge ahead into new and unchartered waters each day knowing that life is a journey meant to be lived and shared to the fullest. Clint, Kelly, and their 3 kids work each day to grow as both a family and individuals, pursuing dreams, valuing creativity, and building it all off of love.
He'll be on stage Saturday, Feb 24th at 1pm and Sunday, Feb 25th at 1pm!
STEVE FORD, HGTV's Restored by the Fords
