Allan Karl Biography

Allan Karl is a global motorcycle adventurer, television host, professional speaker, and bestselling author of the book "FORKS: A Quest for Culture, Cuisine, and Connection." He is a passionate adventurer who has traveled to over 80 countries, many of which were during his remarkable three-year solo motorcycle journey around the world. Karl documents his adventures and travels on his widely read blog at www.worldrider.com and his popular YouTube Channel www.worldrider.tv.

His journeys, adventures, and discoveries have included: sailing the Flores Sea in search of the elusive Komodo Dragon, serving as a team member and photographer in The Dakar—the most treacherous motorsport race in the world, crossing the Nubian Desert in Sudan by motorcycle, and hosted the “Food Explorer” TV show for the Travel & Cooking Channels.

When not traveling the world or embarking on off-the-beaten-path adventures, Karl inspires and motivates audiences through dynamic keynote speeches that combine captivating storytelling with award-winning photography and video. He teaches audiences how to overcome challenges, tackle obstacles, embrace change, smile—especially in the face of adversity—and live an astounding life.

Before his adventures, Karl started several companies and worked in the C-Suite as a branding and marketing strategist. Notably, he founded Wirestone, a leading digital marketing agency that was acquired by Accenture in 2018.

Today, Karl is the principal of WorldRider Productions, a publishing, production, and coaching company. His clients have included Apple, AT&T, Hewlett-Packard, Google, and BMW, among others. He also hosts and produces the "Journeys With WorldRider" podcast and writes for "An Inspired Life of Travel" on Substack.

Karl combines his business and branding experience with his entrepreneurial and adventurous spirit to help people and organizations harness the power of an astounding mindset to establish instant rapport and build deeper and more profound connections. This enables them to embrace change, take chances, grow, innovate, and lead—all while expanding their worldview.

These experiences and his business adventures give Karl a unique perspective and provide the basis for his inspirational and motivational management style.

Karl holds a B.S. in Communications from the S.I. Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University in New York.
