BIO

Kiptyn Locke was born in San Francisco, California. Taught the meaning of the word integrity at an early age, Kiptyn learned to believe in himself and that every person has the power to do something amazing in their lives, if they make the choice to. Even as a child, Kiptyn wanted to start a business to benefit children and has spent much of his life supporting important causes that help children and others in need.

A health and fitness enthusiast and philanthropist known for his positive nature, he spends his life trying to experience the greatest of love and happiness. Part of finding that in his own life is being able to help others find it in theirs. He believes that you must live everyday to let others around you find enjoyment in their existence; you must create the life that you want to live through selflessness, generosity, ambition, spontaneity and risk-taking.

Career

Upon graduating from the University of California Santa Barbara, Kiptyn went on to manage two corporations in the San Diego area and began his work in his altruistic endeavors.

Kiptyn appeared as a hopeful bachelor vying for Jillian Harris’ attention on Season 5 of ABC’s “The Bachelorette.” This was an opportunity he took for the experience, it not only brought him out of his usual comfort zone, but also introduced him to people with like minds and hearts, who also wanted to make a difference and have a positive impact on the lives of others.

In August & September 2010 Kiptyn returned to television as a cast member of ABC’s “Bachelor Pad.” While Kiptyn finished runner-up to the $250,000 prize, he left the show with the respect of his peers as he once again demonstrated his genuine character competing with great integrity throughout the experience. Through the “Bachelorette” and “Bachelor Pad” he now has the support of other people who share a common drive to help worthwhile causes and together they are able to make a greater impact.

Being extremely cause-oriented, Kiptyn does more than simply promote given organizations. Through travel and seeing the world, he has opened his eyes to the diversity in people and respects the unique qualities in everyone. He has also been able to educate himself on many of the pressing issues affecting people today. Kiptyn looks for causes about which he feels passionately and works to educate the public about specific organizations or individuals who are making a difference in working towards a solution. He believes in raising awareness in people and thus empowering and encouraging them to become involved and help make a change where it is most needed. “I think my motivation developed in parallel to my understanding of the world and many opportunities out there. Wanting to have a positive impact and change lives has driven me more and more every year.”

Kiptyn began his charitable activity through work with several non-profit organizations such as planning events with popular band Switchfoot to benefit StandUp For Kids, assisting with events and acting as an advocate for Life Rolls On; an organization driven to help people suffering from spinal cord injuries, and aiding in events for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, as well as many other charitable organizations.

Kiptyn teamed up with his mother as she formed a non-profit organization focused on improving the quality of life of those suffering from Stage IV cancer, Cancer Angels of San Diego. The organization, of which Kiptyn is a board member, provides financial aid to those so ill that they are unable to work to afford the basic necessities of life such as rent, utilities, food and clothing.

What’s New

Having raised over $2 million for various charities over the past five years, Kiptyn aspires to form a business that drives awareness and provides financial assistance to worthy causes by assembling a team of kindred spirits driven to make a positive difference and discover where their help may be needed next.

He currently has a new charitable business in the works called “Hope Rose”. He is presently investing into creating this vision to empower people and encourage generosity through a concept that allows people to give a gift and change a life. Kiptyn is currently staying active with media interviews and public appearances across the United States and Canada.
