Wyatt is the CEO and Co-Founder of the Modern American Party, where he works to solve America’s leadership crisis by inspiring young, passionate and innovative difference-makers to realize their life’s purpose and the importance of being engaged in the political arena.

After over five years in the Big Apple working in the non-profit sector at Harlem Lacrosse, the corporate sector at CBRE and the political sector at Massey for Mayor, Wyatt not only learned his talent for mentoring young professionals on finding their passion, but also he discovered that America is in a leadership crisis.

Therefore, in January of 2017 Wyatt and his Co-Founder, Jane Brady Knight, decided to launch their own business that focuses on connecting different generations to solve our nation’s most pressing issues, as well as building a 21st century political platform to bring a new perspective to Washington.

Wyatt is a National Champion in lacrosse and holds a BA in History and Government from the University of Virginia.

    Why Us?

    It's All About American Democracy

    Here at The Modern American Party, we dig liberal democracy. Our democracy protects, encourages and embraces the sharing of ideas we agree with and, most importantly, do not agree with. The institution itself defends us. The fact that the current political climate threatens this institution makes us more passionate about positively impacting it every day. We wake up every morning in love with what we truly stand for as a country (life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) and are more determined to defend it, to be a better citizen everyday, to restore moral clarity, and to revive true American Democracy. We have embarked on a worthy endeavor, and hope you will join us to make a true difference. #iamamodernamerican
