California native born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Brian grew up in a typical suburban style neighborhood but spent what ever time he had free up in Calaveras County exploring the outdoors, fishing, and photographing nature. When it was time to be responsible and earn his own money for gear he started his career in the Automotive field, where he spent close to 20 years before leaving to start his own photography business.
During this time he gained his interest and respect for quality gear. He has been lucky enough to have found someone who enjoys the outdoors and quality gear as much as he does and together they have created their own mini adventures. He finds it a true joy being a father and teaching the same skills his father and grandparents taught him. One of his favorite things in life is loading up their packs and enjoy the outdoors together as a family.
