This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. BMX bike rider champion turned TEDster...
Jason Frymier is a lifelong BMX bike rider who has won numerous racing championships. He has been unable to ride for the past sixteen years because of his incarceration, and cannot wait for the day when he can once again go for a ride. He often finds himself agreeing to do things that he will later regret… like giving a TEDx Talk. Most days Jason can be found training for what he believes to be an unavoidable fight with the cookie monster. When not training, he can be found con¬templating the fantastic lives of Sock Monkeys. He can also be found listening to the greatest band in the world – Rush, while building models of classic movie monsters. He is learn¬ing management techniques by watching Gordon Ramsey shows. After TEDxMarionCorrectional, he will be available to take pictures and sign autographs for his many fans.
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)
