Speaker, Engineer, TV Host & Actor
Prior to joining the mainstream maker movement, Tamara spent a decade in corporate engineering where she was pivotal in creating Women in Leadership mentorship programs. During this time she noted a lack of women so in 2015, she transitioned full time to outreach in hopes of inspiring more young women to pursue S.T.E.M. careers. It was during this time that she was given the opportunity to battle it out for a chance to join the Mythbusters legacy where her lifetime as a tinkerer and collector of skills landed her as the only female finalist and 2 x MVP winner. Since then has become one of the leading female science hosts and engineers on the Science Channel lending her talents to Scijinks with Johnny Galecki, Mythbusters 2.0 with Brian Louden and Jon Lung and most recently on Mythbusters Jr. with Adam Savage.
“A true Renaissance woman, Tamara pulls experience from engineering, science, and the performing arts to engage audiences across ages, gender, and background, grounding discussions of science in its application to pop culture but expanding from there to push our minds to what’s possible in both science and art! Her panels are always thoughtful balances of speakers that welcome interaction with younger attendees while educating all of us.”
– Matthew Conner, Psychologist / Panel Coordinator for NC Comicon
