Klee Irwin is a passionate researcher, philanthropist, serial entrepreneur, and investor who now dedicates the majority of his time to Quantum Gravity Research (QGR), a non-profit research institute that he founded in 2009. The mission of the organization is to discover the geometric first-principles unification of space, time, matter, energy, information, and consciousness.
As the Director of QGR, Klee manages a dedicated team of mathematicians and physicists in developing Emergence Theory to replace the current disparate and conflicting physics theories. Since 2009, the team has published numerous papers and journal articles analyzing the fundamentals of physics. See full list of papers.
Outside of his work in physics, Klee is active in supporting students, scientists, educators, and founders in their aim toward discovering solutions to activate positive change in the world. He has supported and invested in a wide range of people, causes and companies including Change.org, Upworthy, Donors Choose, Scanadu, Moon Express, Hana Arts on Maui, Hero Science Foundation, Mayasil, the X PRIZE Foundation, and Singularity University where he is an Associate Founder. See full portfolio.
Klee is also the founder and owner of Irwin Naturals, an award-winning global natural supplement company providing alternative health and healing products sold in thousands of retailers across the globe including Whole Foods, Vitamin Shoppe, Costco, RiteAid, WalMart, CVS, GNC and many others. Irwin Naturals is a long time supporter of Vitamin Angels, which aims to provide lifesaving vitamins to mothers and children at risk of malnutrition thereby reducing preventable illness, blindness, and death and creating healthier communities.
Being a Southern California native, Klee and his family split their time between his home town of Los Angeles and his favorite place to be - Hana, Maui.
Despite what we may be exposed to in the media, I am very optimistic and excited about our future as a species and our relationship with our planet. As a result, I direct my creative and financial resources toward actions that help create a more harmonious future and that help us realize that brighter future faster.
