He is the Author of ‘ Around The Campfire,’ a book exploring love that makes cupids envious, heartbreaks that break the door knob to the doctor’s for a stitch, inspiration that inspires a modification of psychology to become better, and a painstakingly charted roadmap that guides humans back to what really matters- humanity.

The young writer with interest in the film making industry and storytelling says if he furthers his studies, it will be along the lines of creative writing and philosophy.
His lifetime dream is to write, travel, and serve humanity.
Writing advice from Brian Kasaine
As a writer, I’ve realized 50% of writing is mental. It is the ability to believe that in the creative ‘oven’ in your skull you can bake that piece of writing that will have impact. When you sit to write, know that you are not alone. You have the one person who will never leave you- the creative legend within you. Let the legend take the wheel, and build resilience even when nothing good is coming out.
