We are thrilled to welcome Keynote Speaker, Kevin Connolly
Kevin Michael Connolly was born without legs in Helena, Montana. An extreme sports fanatic and global adventurer, Kevin Michael Connolly became a bestselling author, actor and X-Game medalist before he turned 30 years old.
After graduating from Helena High School in 2004, Kevin began attending Montana State University. On his return home from a year abroad, Connolly was skateboarding down a backstreet in Vienna and took his first prototype photo for what would become The Rolling Exhibition.
The Rolling Exhibition is an art exhibit of over 33,000 photos that took Connolly to 31 countries as he documented the stares and reactions from others around the world. His photography work has been featured in the Smithsonian Institute, ABC’s 20/20, NPR, BBC, Yahoo! News, and National Geographic.
At the age of 23, Connolly began work on his memoir, “Double Take,” which chronicles his early life, as well as his journey working on The Rolling Exhibition. Double Take has been published in three languages; garnered rave reviews US outlets (“People Magazine,” “Outside Magazine” and the “TODAY Show,”); and is being developed into a feature film by Groundswell Productions.
Connolly’s desire for adventure was featured in Travel Channel’s 2014 original series, “Armed & Ready,” where he created prosthetics to solve obstacles posed to many active amputees. Kevin currently lives and works in Helena, Montana.
