July 10, 2023

Jimmy DiResta lives in New York city and is a master builder who designs, builds, and creates a variety of unique toys for his YouTube videos. He also has multiple streams of income through his shops and online merch sales. He has been able to accumulate a good fortune over the years but prefers to lead a modest lifestyle.

He was born on April 3, 1967, and is 55 years old. His height is 6 feet 7 inches. He has an average body build and is well-toned. He enrolled in the School of Visual Arts and graduated with a BFA degree.

After making his name on YouTube, he appeared on a few home improvement shows including Hammered and Against the Grain on DIY Network. However, it wasn’t until he partnered with actress and comedian Amy Poehler and actor Nick Offerman for the lighthearted crafting competition Making It that his career took off.

Following the success of Making It, he returned to television in 2022 with Netflix’s Making Fun. The show features him and his buddies Paul Jackman, Derek Forestier, John Graziano, and Patrick Laperriere creating toys dreamt up by children. From a taco-spitting T-Rex to a sneaker puncher, they’re able to bring their ideas to life with the help of some power tools and a bit of ingenuity.

In addition to his show, he has a workshop in both lower Manhattan and upstate in the Catskills. He hosts workshops and classes for his fans where he teaches them how to build their own toys. He also sells various accessories, apparel, prints, and tools on his online merch store.
