Thaddeus Owen 

Thaddeus began his journey outdoors, camping and fishing as a boy in the Adirondacks and Central NY forests. After a decade spent developing pharmaceutical products, he just couldn’t face another day adding terrible ingredients like high fructose corn syrup and numerous red dyes into children’s medicine. He shifted gears and engineered a successful work from home assignment following Tim Ferriss’s 4 Hour Workweek. From there, he was able to find a way to incorporate more movement, nature and sunshine into his work environment.

 After learning about biohacking from the man who coined the term, Dave Asprey, Thaddeus healed his own anxiety, lowered his blood pressure and fixed his sleeplessness using biohacking, PrimalHacking and Qigong. He spends his free time experimenting on himself in hopes of helping others on their journey. He writes about his experiments on PrimalHacker.com. Primalhacker explores how to overcome our modern lifestyle with a targeted combination of biohacks and ancestral wisdom. Thaddeus is a certified Bulletproof Coach from the first ever class of coaches, holds a personal training certification, nutrition certification, Master’s degree in Holistic Nutrition and studied Chemical Engineering a long time ago. 

Karen Wondergem 

Karen Wondergem is an educator, researcher, doctoral candidate and mom from Peoria, Arizona. After suffering a series of health problems that were made worse with traditional healthcare, Karen turned her research and educational skills into self-discovery in order to feel stronger, look better​, and ​live longer​. As an ‘accidental biohacker’​​ Karen joined ​Biohackers​ Collective in 2018 with the hopes of helping others​ who wish​ learn about improv​ing​ body and mind through ​shared resources, ​self-learning,​ and reputable​​ biohacking technologies​​.

Blossom Hunter

Blossom Hunter is a resident of Palo Alto, CA and the organizer for two chapters of the Biohackers Collective - San Francisco and Palo Alto/Silicon Valley. 

She is a 47-year-old mom of 2 kids, a life & health coach, and training to be a certified Bulletproof/Human Potential Coach at the time this podcast was recorded. Her passion is helping people achieve improved health, mental clarity, and well-being.

Like many people, a lifetime of chronic health issues left her frustrated and at her wit's end. 20 years and 15+ doctors, finally getting diagnosed with Lyme's Disease and a few other things seemed like a godsend, yet the improvement was shortlived before her health began to deteriorate again.

Through much trial, error, and a lot of searching, she discovered biohacking: that many small fixes add up to radical health changes. She is now devoting her time to helping others make the same discoveries to reclaim their lives and their health back as she has.

Trudy Northcott

A 44 year old single mum from Auckland, New Zealand, and founder of BiohackerNZ. For 30 years Trudy suffered with numerous illnesses including chronic depression. Biohacking was her way to health, when there were no other options left, and led her to a life and profession of now helping others.

Trudy actively attends biohacking conferences internatonally. She is a trained Bulletproof Coach and works with people to better overall performance and health. She runs the New Zealand Chapter of Biohackers Global and is about to launch Hughuacker, the podcast show to help normalise depression.

Manlio Lo Giudice

Manlio aka "The Alchemist" is always striving for "transmuting" things. More practically, he likes to experiment generating original ideas, mixing existing know-how through networking and a critical "bird's view".

More easily, he’s an Italian Mechanical Engineer, full-time employee but working on multiple projects to become "independent". Started his own company, "the Holistic experiment LLC" while in the US and is the first and only (at the date of the present) certified BulletProof Coach in Italy. His studies extensively cover productivity, human performance enhancement and biohacking in general.

Before a drastic life change in 2015, Manlio was overweight and chronically tired, then he decided I had to change something. He passed through Vegan to Fructarian (luckily just for few days), then discovered Bulletproof, Paleo and Keto. And everything has changed. More energy, more "output" more than 20 kgs of fat lost etc.

He started the Biohackers Meetup when in Dubai (UAE) after having "virtually" met James Caldwell and then assisted for the organization of the Italian Meetup in Milan. He is currently based in the Netherlands.
