Actor and author, Rainn Wilson, best known for his role of Dwight Schrute on “The Office,” will present "SoulPancake: Chew on Life’s Big Questions" as part of the 2014-2015 Excellence in Leadership speaker series

Rainn Wilson starred in the long running NBC Emmy and Screen Actors Guild Award winning series for Best Comedy, “The Office,” alongside Steve Carell, John Krasinski, and Jenna Fisher. Over the years, he has endeared himself to millions and earned three Emmy nominations with his portrayal of Dwight Schrute, an eccentric paper salesman whose ego knows no bounds, dreams of being “#2,” and fervently torments his colleagues in his own lovable, pathetic fashion.  

 In 2008, Rainn and two of his friends, Joshua Homnick and Devon Gundry, created the program SoulPancake to create a space where people from all walks of life could discuss and question what it means to be human – a place to wrestle with the spiritual, philosophical, and creative journey that is life. Today, SoulPancake spans multiple distribution channels, from web to print to video to live events. In 2010, the SoulPancake book, SoulPancake: Chew on Life’s Big Questions, was released with thought-provoking messages, bold questions and mindbending art.
