Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will be a featured speaker on Sunday, October 21, at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center. His lecture will begin at 8:00 pm.

Wozniak is affectionately known as the ‘Wizard of Woz’. Together with Steve Jobs, they created the famous Apple Computers, Inc., revolutionizing the world of computers along the way. Wozniak is a philanthropist as well as an icon and his goal all along has been to make computers and technology accessible and affordable to all.

Born in 1950 in Sunnyvale, CA, Wozniak’s career began in the 1970s with the first Apple I and Apple II line of computers. With a lifelong love of electronics, it was only natural that he would become an innovator in the electronics world.

Future Distinguished Speakers include former Mexican President Vicente Fox, Sir Ken Robinson, Caroline Kennedy, Louise Leakey, Robert Gates, and bicyclist Lance Armstrong.
