Conference Banquet Invited Speaker: Jamie Hyneman
Dr. Dr. Dr. HC (Yes, it’s a thing) Jamie Hyneman: I am best known as host and Executive Producer of Discovery Channel’s long running series Mythbusters, but I also had a very diverse range of jobs and skills prior to that, ranging from farming, wilderness survival, Russian linguist, sailboat captain, dive master, film effects technician, engineer, inventor, small business owner, to being a lifetime member of both the International Association of Bomb Technicians and Investigators, as well as the National Science Teachers Association. I’ve worked in a concrete testing lab and as a cook in restaurants. The film effects work and then the intense experimentation we did on testing unusual and dangerous situations on Mythbusters in particular was both figuratively -and literally at times- a trial by fire, and was a fantastic education. As a result I’m also a bonafide contingency planning expert.
