Nelson Dellis is a 4x USA Memory Champion and one of the leading memory experts in the world, traveling around the world as a competitive memory athlete, memory consultant and highly sought-after keynote speaker. As a Memory Champion, mountaineer, and Alzheimer's activist, he preaches a lifestyle that combines fitness, both mental and physical, with proper diet and social involvement.

Born with an average memory, Nelson was inspired by the passing of his grandmother from Alzheimer's in 2009 to start training his memory so that he could keep his mind strong and healthy throughout his lifespan. In a short period of time, he transformed into one of the leading competitive memorizers in the world, claiming four U.S. titles along the way, the elite Grandmaster of Memory title, as well as numerous US memory records.

Nelson is the founder and CEO of Climb For Memory, a non-profit charity that aims to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research through mountain climbs all around the world. Nelson has climbed numerous peaks around the world for this cause, including three times on Mt. Everest. He is also the co-founder and organizer of the Extreme Memory Tournament, the most extreme memory competition in existence.
