James Franklin Hyneman was born on 25 September 1956, in Marshall, Michigan USA. He is one of the most famous special effects expert and also a well-known television personality. Jamie is mainly known for his appearances in the television show called “MythBusters”. In addition to this, Hyneman was involved in the designing team of the robotic camera system called “Wavecam”. During his career as a television personality, Jamie has been nominated for Primetime Emmy Award several times. Another thing which also adds to his success is him owning the company called “M5 Industries”, which was also used as a place where the “MythBusters” was filmed. Jamie is a really extraordinary personality and his work in the technology field has resulted in some very positive changes.

So how rich is Jamie Hyneman? It is estimated that Jamie’s net worth is $8 million. The main source of this sum of money is his activities as a special effects expert.

Jamie studied at Indiana University, where he gained a degree in Russian linguistics, and later he studied engineering in Villanova University. Before becoming entirely involved in special effects, Jamie worked in various positions: he had an opportunity to be a boat captain, machinist, chef and even had his own pet shop. It is slightly weird how one person can have experience in so many fields, but this is what makes Jamie different from others, which nevertheless were the basis to his net worth. Jamie’s career as an expert in special effects began when he started working together with other special effects experts on the movie called “Top Gun”, and this had a huge impact on the growth of Jamie Hyneman’s net worth. As his talent was noticed by others, Jamie also received invitations to work on such movies as “Matrix”, “Flubber” and “Naked Lunch”. Step by step Jamie became more and more successful and soon he decided to create his own special effects company, which is now known as “M5 Industries”. Undoubtedly, founding this company cost him a lot of energy and stress, but now he can be proud of it and the money that it helps to gain. In 2003 Jamie became a part of the famous show called “MythBusters”, which is known all over the world and still continues airing episodes. During the long period of working on “MythBusters”, Jamie had an opportunity to meet Adam Savage, Kari Byron, Jessi Combs, Tory Belleci and other people, who have similar interests and attitude. This show is one of the main sources of Jamie Hyneman’s net worth and it will probably continue airing as long as it will be interesting for the fans. Other shows that Jamie has appeared in include “Unchained Reaction”, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and others. Let’s hope that Jamie’s fans will be able to see him in other shows soon.

If to talk about Jamie’s personal life, it can be said that he married Eileen Walsh in 1984: the couple does not have children, but they are still able to enjoy their lives. All in all, Jamie Hyneman is one of the most interesting television personalities, who has a lot of experience not only in the sphere of technology but also in other activities. As he is now 58 years old, there is still a possibility that he will continue working for a long time.
