Mike Whiteside from "Salvage Dawgs" stars in the HGTV reality series.

Co-owner of Black Dog Salvage, Mike Whiteside is famous for saying, "go big, go hard, go fast, or go home." As the resident optimist of the company, he has yet to meet an impossible task — but knows his limits. As a former Navy parachute rigger, he traveled the world serving our country. Mike's love of travel and the sea led him to a 15-year career as a professional sailor and yacht captain. Some of his other offbeat jobs include ski lift operator and chair seat weaver.

His skill set today involves custom fabrication, ad hoc artistry, and creative salvaging. He may have seen a lot, but is always looking for a way to see it all over again. Easily mistaken for a "bull in a china shop," he enthusiastically barrels headfirst into each job, leaving no stone unturned in the pursuit of all things salvageable. Always looking for a deal, you'll find Mike calling the shots on the front lines of Black Dog bartering. An architectural visionary, Mike loves to tackle design challenges and help customers create their own unique treasures.

On a rare day off, you can find him with a line in the water or riding his Harley though the Virginia countryside looking for the next salvage conquest.

Current Residence: Virginia
