Meet Brian


Brian’s martial arts instructor taught him since childhood that ‘Kindness was the ultimate form of self-defense’ and they were not training to just become a black belt in the arts, but a Kindness Ninja. A true Kindness Ninja, as he was taught, is a person that carries out an act of Kindness without the desire of seeking recognition.

Now Brian is on a mission to inspire crowds of Kindness Ninjas in schools across the country to ban together in solidarity to make a massive difference in the world. His infectious energy and positivity has earned him national media exposure on MTV, USA Today, & MSNBC. He has spoken to over 250,000 students across the country, collected over 300,000 pairs of shoes for needy children and families around the world, produced 2 award-winning humanitarian documentaries and has traveled to Kenya 9-times to carry out Global Acts of Kindness.

Brian’s passion in life is to inspire youth, that every single person has the ability to make a difference in someone’s life. No matter how rich, poor, or dysfunctional your world may be. . . everyone has the ability to impact someone’s life in a positive way.

He is a person of action. He thrives on not being a speaker that takes the stage and talks for an hour and leaves. Rather, he aims to create movements of Kindness within each school he visits. He challenges each school to a massive 15 Days of Kindness challenge, school versus school, seeing who can make the biggest difference in the world. . . in just 15 days. Schools have noticed a decrease in bully related incidences after taking on Brian’s 15 Days of Kindness challenge.

He has mastered the skill of motivating people to action. In addition to traveling the country speaking to students, he also works with school counselors, principals and teachers, equipping them with ideas, resources, and tactics to inspire a Kinder culture within their school.

Brian currently resides in Reno, Nevada with his wife and 1 year-old baby girl. . . who is already starting to Karate Chop everything in sight.

In my 35 years of teaching, I’ve never seen a speaker impact our students like Brian has. Its been 60 days since he was here and students are still talking about his assembly.
