Dave is a two-time New York Times bestselling author of five books, host of the Webby-award-winning podcast Bulletproof Radio, and the creator of the global phenomenon Bulletproof Coffee and the Bulletproof Diet. Through the Bulletproof Diet, countless biological experiments, and simple life “hacks”, Dave has maintained a 100 pound weight loss, upgraded his brain, and transformed himself into a happy and gratitude filled husband, father, writer, executive and human being.

With over 200 million downloads of his Bulletproof Radio podcast, millions of monthly unique visitors to his blog, and the Bulletproof 360 products in millions of households world wide, Dave has created a movement that shows us the power of intention and the incredible capacity of the human body. He has spent the past two and a half decades traveling the planet from Tibet to the Andes, discovering and engineering ways to maximize physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
