Design Star Contestant Michael Verdugo Hollywood, Florida Age: 33 Michael, a bilingual police officer in Hollywood, Florida, spent his teens working alongside his step-father in a kitchen design business. A few years later, Michael, or "Mikey V" as he is know to his friends, found a creative outlet for his building and design passion by "flipping" homes that he renovated and redesigned in his spare time. The venture was so successful that he runs his own home staging company when he's not out on patrol. Michael also is an avid artist who describes his design style as industrial, modern and minimalistic, yet comfortable. With his knack for using unexpected materials to create an edgy, ultra-modern style, Michael plans to bring a new design sensibility to HGTV audiences.
