Michael Don Ham

Initiative Chair

Founder, Wild Orchard Tea Company, United States

I knew from the age of 19 that I wanted to help improve people’s health and lifespan, which led me to choose Kinesiology as my major with a minor in Nutrition. Throughout my life, I have been fortunate enough to gain diverse experiences, including working as a high school teacher, traveling to more than 20 countries, working on a 2,400 acre regenerative organic farm, and performing environmental testing and inspections in homes and offices to diagnose and improve indoor environmental quality (IEQ). I am now fully invested in helping people live long and healthy lives through tea and technology. While we live in an era of innovation and technology, I always emphasize that a single tea leaf has an intricate design far superior to any modern technology we see today. It is important for us to know what foods elevate our health and well-being and then to be able to introduce them into our daily regimen for a healthier lifestyle.
