Brian grew up in Issaquah, and is thrilled to be a part of his home town community again. He began his career in finance and spent four years working in investment banking and at a hedge fund. Brian eventually gravitated toward technology and entrepreneurship, and co-founded a startup which he ran as CEO for nearly seven years until it was acquired in early 2018. After taking some much needed time off, Brian recently joined Amazon on the Alexa team. He enjoys solving problems using enabling technologies and is excited to bring his entrepreneurial spirit and passion to support the IFCB cause.
Brian attended undergrad at the University of Washington, and earned his MBA from the Wharton School. In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his friends and family, reading, programming, guitars, and occasionally even going outdoors. He lives with his wife and one year old son in northeast Seattle.
