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.
An apple falls from a tree and hits Isaac Newton's head - according to the popular legend this is how Newton first thought of the idea of gravity. Although false, this story serves as a perfect example of what Adam Savage, the famous host of MythBusters will try to convey in this speech. 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.
Every problem can be faced in very different ways. Most of us would find several ways to solve it, but would be limited by our own imagination or experiences. Join Adam Savage, the famous MythBuster in this fun and exciting session where he will delve into lateral thinking and everything that this way of facing life and problems entails. 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. Savage will enlighten the audience by showing how a well-trained mind can surprise us and help us improve.
Projectionist, interior and stage designer, entertainer, graphic designer, carpenter, toy designer, welder, stage painter, actor, writer, motivational speaker ...

In this session, your audience will know the rules that Savage sets in his projects to achieve success and why has he chosen these rules. These rules do not ensure success, but they can save us from embarking on disastrous projects or knowing when to stop when something doesn't work for us.
Based on his latest bestselling book 'Every Tool is a Hammer', this session aims to show how Adam Savage's mind works by explaining his creative and productive process. This process is very important as it has led him to work on two of the Star Wars films and allowed him to create 14 fascinating seasons of the popular series Mythbusters.
