    Adam Savage biography

    Equally adept at making extraordinary things and destroying them, famous speaker Adam Savage is a DIY icon. A natural storyteller and a brilliantly engaging public speaker, Adam Savage inspires audiences to follow their creative passions.

    MythBusters host Adam Savage has spent his wide-ranging career bringing his imagination to life. In media ranging from metal and glass to hydraulics and animatronics, Savage has help stoke the curiosity of millions.

    His parents, a filmmaker/painter and a psychotherapist, encouraged Savage’s imagination and gave him the tools to build his dreams. Savage has worked as a carpenter, welder, stage designer, painter, and graphic designer. As an artist, his creations include fine art pieces and giant Buddhas, out-of-this-world weapons and dancing carrots.

    This background served him extraordinarily well when he turned his sights on special effects for television and film. His work appears in two Star Wars installments and two Matrix films, along with more than 100 commercials. In 2003, Savage’s inventiveness and inquisitiveness took center stage when he debuted as the co-host of MythBusters.

    Fourteen years, eight Emmy nominations, and nearly 280 episodes later, the original MythBusters series aired its final episode. Savage returned shortly thereafter with MythBusters Jr. and Savage Builds.

    Since 2012, Savage has shared his thoughts and experiments on Tested.com, an online community of makers and builders. His first book, Every Tool’s a Hammer, is a New York Times bestselling chronicle of his life as a builder, risk-taker, and lesson-learner.

With a lot of fun and stories, Adam will identify small events that can produce simple ideas in our minds that can eventually lead to big discoveries. Normally we push these ideas away either because of their absurdity or because they are impossible to carry out, but Adam encourages us to see that pursuing them can make fascinating scientific discoveries.

Adam will show us through simple practices that many times the straightest path to get from A to B is not always the best nor the only possibility.
