About the Speaker

Born in 1970, Chris Weedin was raised in the Pacific Northwest and spent most of his childhood reading or enjoying the great outdoors, both activities he continues to enjoy. He holds a B.A. in History from the University of Washington, where he graduated with honors, a second degree in Information Technology and a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. He has worked as a furniture deliveryman, professional tutor, programmer, youth minister, computer system administrator and teacher at a community college. His hobbies are broad and varied, including marathon running, camping and hiking, roleplaying, board games, reading, Bible study, Medieval recreation and fencing, writing, speaking and occasional improvisation and acting. Weedin is the creator and developer of the horror-comedy roleplaying game Horror Rules and has written or co-written more than eight books. He lives in Selah, WA with his lovely wife and two lovely and obedient children.

A Lifetime of Talk, a Wealth of Experience

Chris Weedin began speaking formally at age thirteen, when he was chosen as student speaker for his Eight Grade Commencement ceremony. He hasn't stopped since, also speaking at his High School graduation, college graduation and almost every day thereafter, much to the dismay of family and friends. Noted for his innovation, warmth, tongue-in-cheek humor and immediate connection with his audience, Weedin has delivered presentations and speeches to groups of all sizes and in all manner of settings, from corporate gatherings to school assemblies, church retreats to bookstore socials, professional conferences to gaming conventions. His wealth of life experiences and love for public speaking shows in every engagement, and he continually seeks to hone his skills as a communicator and to find new ways to entertain, enlighten and inspire his audiences.
