                                               Julian Assange

Something of an international man of mystery, Julian Assange is an Australian journalist, activist and computer hacker best known for founding the notorious whistle-blower website, WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks was founded by Assange in 2006 and has repeatedly made headlines through its leaks of classified government and military documents to the public, including several damning reports of neglect, abuse, torture and misconduct by the United States in its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Assange was home schooled for several years while traveling with his parent’s touring theater company. He continues to live a nomadic lifestyle as an adult, claiming to spend most of his time in airports. A U.S. criminal investigation, an arrest warrant from Interpol, and calls for his assassination certainly give Assange reason to stay on the move.
