Billy Birdzell, Founder 

I believe that the path to our highest self lies in mastering our base needs.  Subsequently,
we founded Cannae Academy in order to serve those who share our values and commitment to becoming an asset to their family, friends and community by offering cutting-edge training and evolved frameworks that empower us to realize our individual sovereignty and enhance our martial culture.  

Billy served in the USMC as an infantry officer and was a founding member of Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command.  After earning an MBA from the University of Virginia, Billy has worked in the firearms industry where he has connected people and ideas with innovative solutions in an effort to drive positive change.  Billy is the host of RecoilTV's MailCall and creates content on YouTube.  He is a father, husband, writer, climber, and dedicated American.
