DiMeo graduated from Penncrest High School, class of 1976, where he was quite active in student activities such as play production to student council.
DiMeo was the organizer of a renovating project entitled "Loft Living." They work to renovate lofts and brownstones in and around New York City. DiMeo later moved to Los Angeles, California where he continued the "Loft Living" project.
DiMeo worked with master carpenter Rob Hickman on the restoration of the Landmark Brownstone of Aaron Burr.
Currently DiMeo lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Kelly, and runs his marketing/labor company, High Meadows Production, Inc.
According to DiMeo himself, he was invited to join the cast of EM:HE because the casting department was amused by his "grumpy" demeanor on the day of his audition. He is sometimes spoofed on Saturday Night Live due to his tendency to cry frequently and repeatedly during each episode of Extreme Makeover.
In 2011, he was asked by Major League Baseball to design the MLB Fan Cave, where Mike O'Hara and Ryan Wagner watched every baseball game of the 2011 season. He hosts an infomercial for the WORX Trivac.
