Celebrity Profile: Bryan Greenberg


They say first impressions are lasting ones and for this, my first celebrity profile, it couldn’t be more true.

Back in 2007, I was working an event called the Heroes Celebrity Baseball Challenge in Dallas, TX. My primary assignment was in transportation — making sure the celebrities were picked up from the airport, taken to all of the functions of the weekend and sent back to the airport on time. It was my first year doing that and I wasn’t sure what to expect from anyone to the drivers or the celebrities. By far, the most pleasant and lasting impression was that of one actor, Bryan Greenberg. You may know Bryan from One Tree Hill or maybe you watched him on HBO’s How To Make It in America. Maybe you caught him in the movie Friends with Benefits or even in Bride Wars.

It was Bryan’s first year attending. When we first met, he introduced himself and was so gracious and kind the entire weekend. One of the main things that stood out the most to me was exactly how interested he was in the actual charity that they were there to raise money for that weekend. He wanted to know as much as possible about it and even wanted to take the time to go see the kids that were a part of the baseball program. During the weekend, there was a time where a lot of the celebs took some time to chill by the pool and relax before more events of the weekend, but Bryan and his friend decided to take a trip over to the baseball field and meet the kids. That action alone spoke volumes to the character of the man.

I worked on the event a few years after that which Bryan attended and he was always the same guy that I met on that first day. I’ve seen him in the years since and have supported everything he’s done from going to see him on his tours for his music career or attending his charity events, when I can. And what’s even great is that the support is reciprocated. Bryan’s been helpful in giving me feedback on ideas for this business. He’s just all around a really great guy and all of this is why he’s the logical choice for this profile. He’s thoughtful, empathetic and socially conscious.


Bryan has an annual Charity Brunch for a charity that he’s very passionate about, The Olevolos Project. The Olevolos Project is an organization benefiting the orphans and disadvantaged children from the Olevolos Village of Tanzania. It’s focus us on helping develop young leaders through educational programs so that they can become role models for future generations. Bryan has just visited the Olevolos students and shared his experience on his Twitter page.

Take a minute to go check out all of the great work they do for The Olevolos Project. If you’ve got another second, make sure to go give Bryan a follow. He’s great at sharing just the right amount, commenting on things that matter, taking some awesome photos all over the world (he’s at Kilimanjaro now, I’d imagine we’re going to see a few great shots!), and just plain making a post to make you smile. Once you get a glimpse at the guy, I’m sure you’ll grow to appreciate him as much as I do.

    Aw, this was a very nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to
    create a good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot and never seem to get
    anything done.
