Christian Bagg is a Calgary born inventor and mechanical designer. Injured in 1996, while snowboarding, Christian broke his back and was paralyzed from the waist down.
Using his background as a machinist, he starting inventing his way around the challenges he faced. With a love for the outdoors and a passion for problem solving, he has spent the last 20 years designing and building adaptive equipment. What started as a way to solve his own problems grew into an outlet to help others experience the very outdoors that he loves so much.
Sharing his story has helped Christian establish partnerships with government agencies, private corporations and post-secondary education institutions, all with the belief that “everyone belongs outside.”
Christian will be presenting alongside SOLIDWORKS CEO Manish Kumar on the Main Stage.
