Walter O’Brien – Bullied Genius Saves the World

Before Walter O’Brien discovered his intellectual gift, he was a socially awkward and often bullied kid at his school. One day, a bully had gone too far, and Walter was able to use his new found martial arts skills for a schoolyard triumph. Like a true scorpion, Walter was a docile creature, that when pushed enough, will attack and cause some pretty serious damage. Fast forward to 2014 where adult Walter (who has the 4th highest IQ in the world) has become the James Bond of geeks and geniuses, and now has an action packed television series based on his life. On Innovation Crush, Walter takes us on his journey and fills us in on his mission to save geniuses all over the planet.
