Featured Keynote Speaker

Rodney Mullen might be the only Director’s Fellow at MIT who can do a kickflip, and conversely, might be the only accomplished skateboarder who is fluent in Linux.

Appearances can be deceiving. This Jeff Spicoli lookalike is an actual genius who has collaborated with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, IBM’s Watson, Apple, the Smithsonian and others.

As skateboarding royalty, and one of the sport’s most dominant world champions, Mullen sold off his massively successful skate company to fund his true passion: the innovation that happens at the crossroads of skate and hacker culture.

Mullen’s talks on the subject have earned him tens of millions of views on YouTube and features with TED, Wired, Anna Wintour, Physics Girl, and the viral web series “Impact Theory”.

As Interchange’s featured keynote speaker, Mullen will bring his unique perspective on technology’s role in innovation and design to this year’s conference.
