Who: 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 and memory consultant. As a Memory Champion, Mountaineer, and Alzheimer’s Disease Activist, he preaches a lifestyle that combines fitness, both mental and physical, with proper diet and social involvement.

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 a number of U.S. memory records.
