R. J. Gruber Jr. is at once an artist, entrepreneur and educator. As founder of the Political Animal Project, Mr. Gruber has launched a political education campaign that seeks to integrate the first-principles of our Declaration of Independence into the blueprinting of tomorrow’s constructive political culture. 

Mr. Gruber’s political vision was developed during the six years that he spent as Teaching Assistant to the great-souled professor of political thought, Dr. Elliot Bartky. Rather than following his mentor into academia, he is working in popular formats to help audience members engage with the living roots of the American political tradition.

He lives with his wife and their two children in Cincinnati, Ohio.
