Bruce was born in San Francisco and moved to India shortly thereafter at the age of 4. He lived in India,  with his mother for 10 years where she was a teacher at the Woodstock School, one of the best preparatory schools in the world located high in the Himalayas. 

Bruce went to school in Mussoorie, Uttarakhand, India. He learned local languages and gained an appreciation of the depth of culture found all over India. 

Bruce has traveled the world and has a burning desire to help others and improve conditions.  This is what drives him.   Those that know him will say he is one of the nicest men you will ever meet but has a fiery heart to help and cares about others immensely. 


In 2004, Bruce was concerned by many conditions around the world he wanted to change and so started working for Youth for Human Rights International as their Director of South Asia.  He received an honorary Doctor of Letters for his work and dedication to forwarding Human Rights from the International Tamil University, USA

By 2010, Bruce's work took on new meaning in the field of human rights with the launch of the Reform Through Education organization and it's impactful initiatives. 

"Fear and submission are products of superstition and subjugation. Only good quality education can empower and provide hope. Fight Back!"
