Kari Byron

Host of Discovery Channel's "Mythbusters" & Science Channel's "Head Rush"

Kari Byron Biography

For over a decade Kari Byron has been a strong presence in the world of reality-based science television. She is best known as a host on Discovery Channel’s "Mythbusters," but has gone on to host and produce shows spanning several networks including "Head Rush," "Punkin Chunkin," LDRS, "Thrill Factor," "Strange Trips," "America Declassified" and now "The White Rabbit Project" on Netflix.

Fostering her curious nature, she spent a lifetime acquiring odd skills and interests. After graduating college and traveling the world she decided to settle in San Francisco and pursue a career as a sculptor. Special effects and prop making seemed like a perfect fit. Trying to break into the field, she got an internship at M5 industries with Jamie Hyneman. Her first day turned out to be the beginning of "Mythbusters," and a career in television. Though her dream was to be a working artist somehow handling poop, eating bugs, wiring explosives and scraping chicken guts off the ceiling turned out to be her real dream job.

Her passion for smart entertainment has lead her around the world, speaking on the role of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) programming on television, as well as hosting science fairs from Silicon Valley to the White House.

Her first book Crash Test Girl, "An Unlikely Experiment in Using the Scientific Method to Answer Life's Biggest Questions," is on shelves now.
