Mina Starsiak Hawk, HGTV's Good Bones
With her keen real estate acumen and strong sense of purpose, Mina Starsiak Hawk is dedicated to the art and the business of saving old homes.
Mina founded the home renovation company Two Chicks and a Hammer in the late 2000s, with the goal of revitalizing Indianapolis one property at a time. She became the star of the hit HGTV network show Good Bones, currently in its eighth season. With dozens of homes rehabbed and more than 13 million viewers per season, the show is one of the network's most successful series, and generated the spinoff show Good Bones: Risky Business and the soon to air Good Bones spinoff where Mina will be renovating a lake house she and her family recently purchased.
Mina has also starred in the popular HGTV series A Very Brady Renovation, Rock the Block and Battle On the Beach, and is developing another new series for HGTV.
When she is not running her business, filming television shows, and working on national campaigns, Mina is a devoted mom to son Jack and daughter Charlotte. She is the author of the kid’s book Built Together. Mina and her family currently reside in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Mina will be appearing on our stage at 1pm on Saturday, March 2, 2024!
Steve Ford, Designer, Contractor and TV Talent, HGTV’s Restored by the Fords
Steve Ford is a proud Pennsylvania native, and he’s not your average contractor and renovator. Steve is known for his work on HGTV's hit shows including Restored by the Fords, Home Again with the Fords, A Very Brady Renovation, Rock the Block, and the Property Brothers’ Brother vs. Brother. Steve is also the host of an online series, 'Stuffed with Steve Ford,' that showcases PA’s agriculture and food history with stops along Pennsylvania's rich culinary trail.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Steve had a knack for creative carpentry at a young age and put that inventiveness to good use as an adult. A licensed contractor and man of many talents, Steve takes on the most unconventional design challenges. His diverse portfolio includes store design, displays, and set design for a number of national retail brands, and much more.
Steve’s designs and construction work have been prominently featured in national magazines such as The Pioneer Woman Magazine, This Old House, Domino, People, and Country Living. Steve is also a co-author of the book titled, Work in Progress: Unconventional Thoughts on Designing an Extraordinary Life, offering insights into both design and growing up.
In addition to his professional pursuits, Steve is an avid outdoorsman, a passionate snowboarder, and enjoys working in his massive woodworking workshop. Steve is a devoted family man, happily married to Andrea, and together they have an adorable (and very busy) toddler son, Jack.
