Speaker Bio
From the Baltimore Opera to QVC shopping channel, executive producer, host, and best-selling author Mike Rowe has had hundreds of jobs and relished his role as a chronic freelancer. He's best known as the "dirtiest man on TV," a title he earned on the hit TV series "Dirty Jobs." Today, you can join Mike for a romp through history on the discovery+ series "Six Degrees" as he uncovers the surprising connections between two disparate things and shows how everything in our crazy world is connected. You can also listen to him on "The Way I Heard It," where he tells short stories you don’t know about people you do know and shares intimate conversations with fascinating folks from his own life and career; read his New York Times best-selling book "The Way I Heard It," a mix of biography and auto-biography based on his popular podcast; or watch him on the show "Somebody's Gotta Do It" on TBN or Pure Flix. In what can only be described as an envelope mix-up, Mike won an Emmy for his work on Facebook's groundbreaking series "Returning the Favor. " As the country's leading advocate for skilled labor and the CEO of the mikeroweWORKS Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity that debunks myths and misperceptions about the trades and helps close the skills gap, his foundation has granted millions of dollars in work ethic scholarships. In his spare time, Mike keeps a lively conversation with more than 8 million friends on social media, where he talks about everything from the musings of his persnickety terrier named Freddy to the merits and pitfalls of blind patriotism.
