    Chris Guillebeau is a writer, world traveler, entrepreneur, and lifelong learner.

    rnrnFrom 2002-2006, Chris served as a volunteer executive for a medical charity in West Africa before returning to the U.S.

    and completing a Master's degree in International Studies at the University of Washington.

    Hen then started the blog The Art of Non-Conformity (AONC) and wrote the book of the same title.

    Both projects chronicle his personal quest and provide a platform for others interested in pursuing a big dream while making the world a better place.

    rnrnWhen not roaming the world, Chris lives in Portland, Oregon.

    You can follow him at twitter.com/chrisguillebeau or at the nearest Stumptown coffee shop.rnrnIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

    At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

    These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

    The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
