Brian Wheeler, M.A., is a wordsmith, philosopher, and Alan Watts scholar. He is writing his first book, Cosmic Fruit: Awakening to a New View of Life, which is based on Watts’ organic cosmology. Given Wheeler’s passion for exploring the bounds of human potential and cosmic connection, he writes from the ground of experience, inquiry, and scholarly creativity.
After earning a master’s degree in Philosophy & Religion (concentration in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness) at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), Wheeler is presently a PhD student in the university’s East-West Psychology program. For his bachelor’s degree, Wheeler attended Western Washington University’s interdisciplinary program (Fairhaven College), where he studied writing, worldviews, and consciousness.
As a seasoned journalist, versatile editor, decorated athlete, world-renowned kiteboarding judge, and accomplished writer, Wheeler’s passion for action sports and the written word runs deep. Having written for 30+ magazines, amassed 800+ pages of editorial exposure for clients around the world, and edited for several industry-leading publications (such as Wakeboarding and Kiteboarding magazines), his editorial experience spans four industries.
Additionally, Wheeler has served as the Head Judge and Editorial Director of the Wind Voyager Triple-S Invitational, and Head Judge at Rail Masters in Russia. He has freelanced for a slew of other prestigious clients, including the KSP Kitesurfing World Championship Tour, numerous action sports companies (such as Liquid Force and Slingshot), Velocity Island cable park, and the Virgin Kite Jam Maui. Additionally, he has covered a variety of one-of-a-kind events such as Wind Or No Wind, Sir Richard Branson’s Billabong BVI Kite Jam, and the BVI Kite Jam.
While Brian Wheeler is the world’s most widely published kiteboarding wordsmith, he also has a much deeper side too: a love for exploring and writing about the mysteries of consciousness, life, and existence.
