HGTV & DIY Network Host Anthony Carrino On Working With Lowes, Upcoming Projects & More

Discovering his creative side while attending business school — and leaning on his early teenage years working construction Anthony and his father Alfonso — Anthony Carrino co-founded Brunelleschi Construction in February 2004. Carrino ultimately built a successful development, general contracting and design firm with a unique focus on restoring old, architecturally-significant structures within a number of New Jersey hotspots, including Jersey City and Hoboken.

Now on their fourth TV series, Carrino and his cousin John have been the driving creative force behind Kitchen Cousins, Cousins On Call, Cousins Undercover, and now America’s Most Desperate Kitchens. Their shows can been seen on cable television favorites HGTV and the DIY Network.

As one of HGTV’s Kitchen Cousins, Carrino is known for his creative design and space-planning. He spends his days overseeing projects that make the “indoors” beautiful, but what you don’t know is when the job is done, the project Carrino really wants to oversee is a perfectly-grilled meal.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Anthony Carrino on June 19, 2019 about grilling — which ties in with his work with Lowes — and many of his other projects. More on all things Anthony Carrino can be found online by visiting his official website at
