Former professional snowboarder Kevin Pearce sustained a traumatic brain injury that ended his career just shy of the 2010 winter olympics. Motivated by his experiences, Kevin has set out to inspire people to better understand the most vital and fragile human organ, the brain. Kevin is sharing the message and work of the LoveYourBrain Foundation all over the world through motivational speaking, retreats, and educational programs.
Kevin’s remarkable recovery –- and his journey to accept his new life – has been chronicled in “The Crash Reel,” a documentary by two-time Oscar nominated director, Lucy Walker.
When Kevin sustained a severe traumatic brain injury in 2009, Adam took a leave-of-absence from his job and spent an entire year by Kevin’s side supporting his rehabilitation.
Adam co-founded LoveYourBrain alongside Kevin and now serves as the Executive Director. Through his vision, LoveYourBrain endeavors to help all people understand what it means to truly love their brain.
Adam also served as the co-producer and co-videographer of the HBO documentary “The Crash Reel.” The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2013 and was short listed for a 2014 Academy Award.
