Brian Kannard


Fifteen years ago, while advancing a degree in Finance/Economics at David Lipscomb University, Brian came across an elusive reference to the Knights Templar. A single paragraph in a textbook set Brian's curious mind on researching topics relating to the esoteric and unexplained. Brian's findings lead him to become a Mason, achieving the 32nd Degree in the Scottish Rite. In 2006, Brian began sharing his findings on the Grail Seekers blog and website.

Since then, Brian's articles have been featured on such websites as: CNN, Unexplained Mysteries, Coast to Coast AM, Red Ice Creations, and Daily Grail. His quest for hidden knowledge has taken Brian to various locations including Scotland, and France. The work done for Grail Seekers has been the topic of internet radio interviews and most notably the Pittsburgh area's Scottish Rite hosted Brian as a key note speaker. Along the way, Brian has been honored to discuss his views with Thomas Steinbeck, Patrice Chaplin (Charlie's daughter-in-law), Bruce Burgess (Bloodline Documentary) and Reverend Lionel Fanthorpe.

Assisting Brian in his efforts at their Nashville home are his lovely wife Laura, young son Robert, and unholy black cat Preacher.
