Steve Kamb is the creator and leader of NerdFitness.com, a fitness community dedicated to helping average Joes and desk jockeys live healthier lives. In just under three years, Steve has taken Nerd Fitness from a simple one-man blog and developed it into a passionate “rebellion” of over 15,000 loyal members.
Since early 2009, Steve has applied the most addicting and enjoyable aspects of video game culture to leveling up in real life, culminating in his worldwide Epic Quest of Awesome. While running his business from a laptop, Steve has explored the ruins of Machu Picchu and Angkor Wat, dived with sharks on the Great Barrier Reef, flew a stunt plane in New Zealand, hiked the Great Wall of China, lived like James Bond in Monte Carlo, tracked animals in South Africa, and guest lectured at Facebook and Google.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In 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)
