Brian and his family have made Columbia their home since 1995. He grew up in Bettendorf, Iowa and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design from Iowa State University in 1994.
After graduation, he worked retail management with Wal-Mart and Bass Pro Shops. In early 2018, Brian joined Voya Financial Advisors as an Administrative Assistant. He has embraced the challenge of a new career and enjoys the camaraderie of the team.
Brian and his wife Beth have three children (Amanda, Olivia, and Nicklaus), along with one grandson (Everett) and Rowin – an energetic (rescue) Border Collie.
In addition to visiting family in Iowa and Kansas City, Brian and his wife enjoy being active sponsors of children in need and the opportunity to support Beth's home church – St. John's Lutheran Church in Waukon, IA.
In his spare time, Brian enjoys freelance graphic design, barbecuing, spending time outdoors and endurance cycling.
