Hugh Herr Booking Agency Profile

Book Hugh Herr for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Hugh Herr is an American biophysicist, engineer, and rock climber. Growing up, Herr was a prodigy rock climber and by only 8 years old he had scaled the face of the Mount Temple in the Canadian Rockies and at only 17, he was known to be one of the best climbers in the United States. After getting caught in a blizzard while trying to hike Mount Washington, Herr had suffered severe frostbite and had to have his legs amputated below the knees. After months of surgeries and rehabilitation, he was back to climbing again using specialized prostheses that he designed. After his climbing career, Herr earned an undergraduate degree in physics at Millersville University, and went on to earn a master’s degree in mechanical engineering at MIT, and a Ph.D. in biophysics from Harvard University. Herr is a professor at the MIT Media Lab. He directs the Biomechatronics research group and co-directs the MIT Center for Extreme Bionics..

There is low probability to book Hugh Herr for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Hugh Herr agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Hugh Herr, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Hugh Herr booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired.
