Greyson Peltier has a track record of bringing groundbreaking, radical ideas to light since he was 12 years old. Having experience as a political reporter and commentator, policy organization board member, startup business Vice President, and professional marketer, he found much lacking in the models used to run society, politics, and business. However, after gaining a deeper understanding of alternative cultures, he changed his approach away from conventional politics and business, leaving his roles in conservative organizations, and made it his mission to influence the public discourse toward change through ideas that have been ignored or misunderstood. Through a series of personal trials and triumphs, he saw the need for flexible, interdisciplinary systemic solutions that respect people’s agency, just as the elites of society have enjoyed, for the working class. Today, he is a consultant, content creator, and marketer promoting relatable narratives that meet people where they are and diversity, equity, and inclusion, while advocating for progressive policy change. His approach to policy comes from the bottom up, looking to the challenges of each individual and community, seeing how they adapt and respond based on their knowledge of their context, and seeing where systemic barriers exist and which interventions can help them flourish. By blending his expertise across public policy, business, media, and marketing with social consciousness, he finds solutions to difficult problems when least expected. His podcast, The Fixerpunk Podcast is based on these ideas and is intended to spark conversations that bridge the divide between personal and social change.
Greyson first took to the radio airwaves on ESPN’s AM 830 KLAA, appearing on air with the likes of Roger Lodge (former Blind Date host), Dave Smith, and Jeff Biggs. He was named the Resident Political Analyst of The Sports Lodge for his ability to provide cogent perspectives on politics in a manner that was cohesive with the show’s sports format. In addition, Greyson was an early adopter of the podcast and live streaming mediums in 2009 with live call-in shows on politics and sports topics, was a columnist for Huffington Post subsidiary Patch, and lead a team of political reporters for the journalism division of Tea Party Patriots. He would later serve on the Board of Directors of Tea Party Youth until 2017.
Simultaneously, he showed innovation and business acumen in building Fitt Enterprises, Inc. into an innovator in Foodservice, with business models that would years later proliferate as tech and business trends. Greyson’s approach in the company, which originally started as a healthy foods takeout business called Fitt Meals To Go, focused on leveraging technology as a competitive advantage, and under his guidance Fitt was the first to use the term “Virtual Kitchen” and among the first in Orange County to partner with GrubHub in 2011, before these apps became commonplace. They received an Award of Excellence from the County of Orange in 2010 and held a 5 Star Yelp Rating throughout its operation. Fitt Meals To Go was also a pioneer in healthy school lunches, as its School Lunch Solutions program was introduced into a small group of Orange County private schools with great success years prior to federal intervention to improve public school lunches. Realizing that the facility where Fitt operated had sufficient capacity to support other businesses that did not have a commercial kitchen, Virtual Kitchen Solutions was launched, primarily under Peltier’s auspice. As such, the term “Virtual Kitchen” for the concept of using restaurant space to support new food concepts, now used heavily on GrubHub, Uber Eats and similar platforms, was pioneered by Peltier and Fitt Enterprises.
Greyson has also served as a marketing expert for small businesses, new media outlets, and large venture-backed firms, focusing on digital platforms. He now advises businesses and organizations on marketing, communications, and revenue development through his consulting firm Off Speed Solutions.
From creating socially responsible business models, to analyzing and communicating about laws and policies to benefit the working class, to helping people advocate for themselves so systems of power can work for them, to finding ways to use the social significance of sports to create inclusive community, he believes the fight to change the world knows no boundaries.
Having graduated high school at age 15, Greyson earned his degree with honors at age 20 from the University of Southern California, majoring in Political Science. He also attained five Associate’s degrees in the fields of Communications, Economics, Business Administration (AA and AS-T), and Social and Behavioral Sciences from Coastline College in Newport Beach, CA. As a leader in the journalism program at Tea Party Patriots, he received political media and speaking training from a former presidential speechwriter via the Leadership Institute.
While in school, Greyson put his desire to serve into action by volunteering with the IRS’ Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program and by co-founding his school’s first honor society, Alpha Beta Gamma. Additionally, while at USC, he conducted research on the political preferences of young evangelicals using a unique discontinuity analysis method to isolate and determine their attitudes relating to social justice.
