From his first appearance on Trading Spaces, audiences took notice of the 6'2" carpenter voted People magazine's "Sexiest Man on TV" who looked more like a runway model than the guy who puts shelving in your den. But Carter's talent as a lifestyle expert and craftsman is as genuine as his down-to-earth personality.

Carter Oosterhouse is one of America's most recognized lifestyle experts. As host of HGTV's Carter Can, Red, Hot & Green and a regular contributor to the Emmy® Award-Winning Rachael Ray Show, Carter's unique combination of skill, passion and charm have given him widespread appeal for families and individuals alike seeking to improve the quality of their lives by enhancing their surroundings.

Carter is the founder of Carter's Kids, an organization dedicated to building and developing community parks and playgrounds in low-income areas in an effort to promote healthy living. Carter's Kids has brought playgrounds to areas across the country including Los Angeles, New Orleans, Dallas and Miami. Most recently, the Council for Responsible Energy has selected Carter as their spokesperson to help inform the public on the new, efficient ways of using energy resources responsibly and making everyone's home a little more "green."
