Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.
Bipolar MANiac. - Living from Pole to Pole.
Brian Walker has been an independent inventor/entrepreneur (inventrepreneur) for the past 35 years. He has invented and built everything from toys to a two-man submarine. He has licensed nearly 2-dozen toys, one of which became Disneys biggest seller, with over a half billion dollars sold at retail. He is currently developing a women's self defense product.
He has lived in Bend for 18 years.
Along with being dyslexic and ADHD, Brian Walker has lived with and been governed by bipolar disorder all of his life.
For 40 years, he has gone from one manic episode to the next, and has thus experienced adventures here at home and around the world. He's been poor and destitute, rich and famous. He has flown military aircraft and trained with Cosmonauts in Russia, built a submarine in Fiji, and spent millions on his bid to be the first private citizen to launch into space in a home built rocket.l
Mr Walker is now on a mission to try and inform and educate others as to just what this disorder is, and why people shouldn't fear those with it.
