The Henry Evans speeches reflect his passion for philanthropy and technology. After graduating high school, Evans attended Notre Damn and graduated with degrees in accounting and German. He then went on to achieve an MBA from Stanford University, and became the Chief Financial Officer in Silicon Valley, which is where he currently resides.
In 2003, shortly after moving into his new home with his wife, he suffered a severe stroke. The stroke was caused by a birth defect and Evans became a quadriplegic. With the support of his family, Evans found the will to persevere and he began to become fascinated with technology to assist those who are disabled. Robots for Humanity is a project which helps people perform at their best using their mind to control robotic movements.
