A life of exploration, innovation, endless education, and entreprenuership
A veteran of Product Management, Product Design, and Lifecycle Marketing, Brian has consulted with and has worked with companies throughout South America, East Asia, Europe, and the United States in the Travel, Ecommerce, and Special Event industries.
Starting in performance marketing, Brian eventually moved into the role of Creative Director and Product Manager for a traditional and digital travel publication. In 2012, Brian launched his own event mapping product for special events which was later used for the GoPro Mountain Games and the 2015 World Championships. The mapping company was later sold and became the foundation for Rocky Mountain Adventure Rentals which has since become the fastest growing Adventure Rental company in Colorado.
While building his own digital mapping products, Brian also worked as a consultant for start-up and growth-stage companies where he focused on Product Management with an emphasis on Lifecycle Marketing including acquisition and retention strategies.
Currently, Brian works as a Director of Product for an ecommerce marketplace where he uses his background in Data, Marketing and Design to help drive product growth strategies and product development.
Brian calls Gypsum, CO home where he lives with his wife, dog, and the occasional mountain lion. He has been proving that remote workers are the most efficient since 2011.
To this day, Brian continues to moonlight as a Growth and Product Advisor for Rocky Mountain Adventure Rentals. Having created and managed the strategy that grew Rocky Mountain Adventure Rentals (RMAR) into the fastest growing adventure outfitter in the state, Brian has since used this platform to work with local towns, the National Forest Service, and environmental agencies to address environmental impact concerns for adventure tourism and actively works with these agencies to improve rules and regulations for sustainable growth.
To top it off, Brian is also a published Children’s Book Illustrator, Medical Illustrator, and he has worked as a Technical Illustrator for Fly Fishing soft goods. A world traveler and former backcountry guide, Brian has jumped out of planes, heli-skied the San Juans, Fly fished the north highlands of Scotland, and he has guided more rivers, mountaineering trips, and slot canyon trips than he can count.
