Brad Monatgue is the creator of Kid President, the popular web series featured on Rainn Wilson’s Soulpancake Youtube channel that has been viewed more than 16 million times. With a passion for helping foster creativity and compassion in young people, he is also the director of GO! Camp, an experience for teenagers who want to change the world, and co-founder of Love In Stereo, a collective of artists striving to create work that matters.
His speaking focuses on inspiring creativity in order to transform the world it should be. He wants to communicate to children of all ages that the future is in their hands and they make it anything they want it to be; just because the world is one way doesn’t mean it’s the right way. He has collaborated with many different types of communities, classrooms, brands, and more. Each talk is tailored to its audience and can be fitted to an adult crowd as well. Inspiring creative thinking has no age limit.
Brad hopes, “With our work, we strive to joyfully rebel against the way things are, and attempt to create the world as it should be.”
He and his wife, Kristi Montague, created Montague Workshops with this mission in mind. They have created merchandise, including a fashion line, centered around the “joyful rebel,” as well as a media outlet for inspirational videos and content. Their work has been featured by Times, Today, SoulPancake, BBC, CBN News, New York Times, NPR, USA Today, BuzzFeed, Mashable, ABC, Entertainment Today, Scholastic News, Youtube KIDS, Discovery Kids, Hollywood Reporter, Variety, Los Angels Times, Advertising Age, Huffington Post, People, CNN, Nickelodeon, VH1, and TED.
He lives and works in Tennessee with Kristi, and his son Miles.
