J.R. Furst is an entrepreneur, a poet, and an community-builder. He’s eschewed a traditional path in favor of learning from life itself, and from those he admires. Always in search of honest expression and being, he’s a truth-seeker and freedom-seeker. His winding path has lead him to be a popular Sports Poet on KNBR, a co-founder of Beyond This Prison, and a Program Director at Youth Spirit Artworks. Along the way, he’s been awarded the “Consciousness in Action Award” from Institute of Noetic Sciences. He’s also a proud member of the Institute for Evolutionary Leadership.
