About Brian Hite Ph.D

Since I was seven years old, I’ve been in one performance arena or another. I’ve spent time on stages and fields, in front of cameras and classrooms.

In the athletic realm, I wrestled and played both soccer and baseball; I coached soccer, baseball, and gymnastics; and I’ve been (and still am) the parent of a competitive soccer player.

In the performance realm, I’ve toured with live shows, done standup comedy, and worked for over 20 years as a stuntman & coordinator in the film/TV industry.
I love to stay busy by maintaining old skills as well as learning new ones. My daughter and I ride dirt bikes, skateboards, and regular bikes; rollerblade; and play soccer, basketball, and street hockey when the weather permits. I also like to write, read, and go to various games (hockey, baseball), shows (Broadway musicals), and game/show combinations (Harlem Globetrotters).

Along the way, I received a Bachelor’s in Psychology, a Master’s in Sport Psychology, and a Ph.D. in Organizational Psychology and have spent the last 15 years helping athletes, performers, and U.S. Army soldiers develop the MENTAL STRENGTH resources necessary for them to perform to their potentials and navigate life’s challenges to the best of their abilities.
In addition to working with performers of all stripes, I am also on the faculty at Grand Canyon University and work as a Dissertation Chair for Ph.D. students in the Organizational Psychology, General Psychology, and Sport Psychology doctoral programs.

Performance has been an integral part of my life for 40 years, and few things make me happier than helping people fully and consistently experience the joy of the activities they love to do.
