Letting intuition be his guide, he began to step out of his comfort zone and unexpected paths and talents started to emerge such as writing, acting, and crafting stories. Tapping into this emerging creativity, Brian began his own hero’s journey of self-realization and growth, which continues to influence his empowering and inspiring books, films, and presentations.
He also wrote Finding Your Voice, which was an award-winning Finalist in both the USA Book News and the Indie Excellence Book Awards. His recently released children’s book Steve the Alien was an Amazon #1 Best-Seller.
Brian walks his talk and happily shares his journey and personal stories in hopes of authentically inspiring others. Whether it’s a personalized talk, presentation, discussion of his work, or a workshop, Brian’s goal is to be of service, facilitate growth and share his experiences. Learn more at his Speaker page.
In 2011, Brian created the award-winning Guitar Man, a movie project that he wrote, produced, and acted in that was filmed in downtown Reno, Nevada. Brian created the movie with the idea of sharing the messages that we all have a lot in common, and that our true gifts reside within ourselves. Guitar Man was well received. It was accepted to 11 movie festivals and was a winner at the Love Unlimited Film and Art Festival. Guitar Man can also be viewed at the Filmmaker page.
Brian has also begun to create videos featuring his poetry, as can be seen in The Studio Series.

After a knee injury sidelined him in college, Brian used the rehabilitation process to strengthen his body and set a goal to race in a mini-triathlon when his knee healed. After finishing that first race in 1987, Brian was hooked, and he continued to race periodically over the course of the next 20 years. He finished over 50 triathlons including 4 Ironman distance races (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run). A couple of Brian’s favorite races were Ironman Canada in 1989 (his first Ironman) and the 2005 Vineman Ironman race (where his son Michael was able to run across the finish line with him).
Brian wasn’t satisfied with just riding his bike to school as a kid…he had to take it to a whole different level and ride it across the United States! Brian accomplished a life-long goal of riding his bicycle across America when he joined a group of fellow philanthropic bicyclists to raise money for charity and rode from Seattle to Washington D.C. in 1996. The trip was one of the highlights of Brian’s life. Brian has written stories about some of his triathlon and cycling experiences in his blogs and book Finding Your Voice.
To raise money for charity, Brian joined a group of fellow philanthropic bicyclists to ride 3600 miles from Seattle to Washington D.C. in 1996 to raise money for Bike Aid. He has also been involved in the Big Brother/Big Sister Program.
Brian is currently writing an untitled self-help book for a fall 2018 release, a script with his screenwriting partner Susannah Rose Woods and just released his second children’s book Lucy and Chester’s Amazing Adventures! He is also co-hosting the Internet radio show Let’s Get Real! with Jamie Dawn on 12Radio every Thursday morning at 9amPST. And always be on the lookout for an inspirational video release!
