Chris Shrewsbury

Fandom Guest (Because “Hilarious and Sexy Amputee” isn’t a category. Yet.)
Durham, North Carolina
Chris has volunteered, paneled, guested, staffed, and been committee at literally dozens of cons along the east coast for 30+ years. He's a nationally certified sign language interpreter, working in entertainment, education, medical, and government settings.

Following Navy service he taught hearing and hearing-impaired students, pre-K through university. Recently Chris developed neurological illness affecting strength, balance, and increasing pain, requiring wheelchair use, and resulting in several surgeries, including lower leg amputation.

He's a tireless disability advocate and encourager, especially within the convention community. Still cosplaying, many costumes incorporate his disability, such as building a mobile TARDIS around his wheelchair, earning first prize in NC Comicon's Doctor Who division.

A busy public speaker, writer, comedian, and nationally-ranked Simon Says caller, he's also Fandom & Geek Life Programming Director (ConCarolinas), Co-Manager of Programming (Conapalooza), Accessibility Director (RavenCon), Panelist (everywhere!), and creator of Accessibility Services at Animazement. Chris' sense of humor and love of all things geek make him a popular convention Guest.
