Corbin Billings (born July 27, 1988) grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, attending Jenks Public Schools. At an early age, he became a notable motivational speaker, and his bumper sticker campaign of "Do Your Share To Get Clean Air" became a sensation. In less than four months he had commitments for 169,105 trees in Oklahoma. He met with the mayor of Tulsa, Governor of Oklahoma, and became the youngest professional speaker in the history of the National Speakers Association. At the age of 9, Corbin was made the youngest faculty member of The People's Network, a satellite success channel after speaking to 6,000 people in the Dallas convention center.[1] He aligned with American Forests to reach their goal of planting 20 million trees as well as "Up With Trees" a local foresting agency in the Tulsa area. Currently Corbin's cause has led to the planting of 280,000,000 trees across the United States, France, & Canada.[2] He was nicknamed the new Johnny Appleseed kid and also served as the model for Tree Bear, the American Forests Association's sequel to Smokey Bear.[3] At the age of nine, Corbin and his mother co-wrote the book The ABC's of Becoming Great as well as its two sequels, "The ABC'S of Peace & Compassion" & "The ABC's of Great Leadership." [4] Billings is a recent graduate of the University of Southern California, where he studied film production.

He is currently touring his undergraduate thesis, Limikkin Ranch [1] [2], at film festivals across the country.
