I do portraits or I make sculptures exploring my cynical view of contemporary issues. Artists that over-explain their art always take away from my experience as a viewer. I try to let my viewer make their own message. Art becomes more personal if you let yourself become involved. I will always explain my motivations and themes if someone asks but I prefer to hear theirs.
Byron was born in California. She graduated from Los Gatos High School in Los Gatos, California and studied at San Francisco State University, graduating magna cum laude in May 1998 with a Bachelor of Arts in film and sculpture. She spent the following year backpacking, primarily in South Asia, and was involved in a number of art projects.
Art and sculpting are important aspects of Byron's life, and she has claimed that she creates some form of art every day, stating: "I would go crazy if I didn't." Some of her preferred sculpting materials are polymer clay, various found objects, acrylic gouache, wood, and metals. Byron showcases some of her art on her personal website, and photography from her public exhibit debut Stray Doll in September 2004 is available at Anno Domini. She believes being an Artist is a hard career to choose but has found inspiration in artists such as various SECCA award winners in the past. Preferring to make her audience think, she has had the following to say about her art:
Byron married Artist Paul Urich in March 2006. They have one daughter, Stella Ruby (born June 28, 2009).
Byron has been an atheist since her grandmother told her a Buddhist girl in her second-grade class wouldn't go to heaven. She describes herself as a skeptic, a scientist and a pacifist. She is a pescetarian and was visibly uncomfortable whenever MythBusters experiments required the use of animal remains. She previously described herself as a vegetarian to avoid having to explain pescetarianism, but later said she does in fact eat fish. In the 2010 MythBusters episode "Cold Feet", she stated that she has a "very limited diet", and in the episode "Flu Fiction", she revealed that she has a fear of germs.
Byron and Belleci hosted coverage of Pumpkin Chunkin on the Science Channel from 2011 to 2014.
Regarding how a background in art has been applied to her work with MythBusters, Byron made the following observation at the Dublin High School Engineering and Design Academy Open House in February 2012:
In 2015, Byron and Tory Belleci hosted Thrill Factor, a new show for the Travel Channel. In this show they visit and showcase thrill rides around the world and explore a little bit of science such as the effect of G forces on breathing, heart rate and other factors.
Byron, along with Imahara and Belleci, hosted the Netflix production White Rabbit Project, released on Netflix on December 9, 2016. The series focused on unusual aspects from history and pop culture.
