Ever the entrepreneurial spirit and music fan extraordinaire, after attending San Diego State University, Brian began designing and manufacturing tee shirts for various popular bands. His company Freedom Styles specialized in licensed products for bands and professional sports teams. As one of the few licensed merchandising companies for the Grateful Dead, Brian provided production and distribution services the band could rely on. After the death of Jerry Garcia, Brian sold his manufacturing company and did freelance work for Neil Diamond, getting busy again when asked to help start an in-house merchandising company for Carlos Santana.
After several successful years with the Santana camp as merchandising road manager, Brian was asked to perform the same creative services for Bob Dylan.
Brian had an amazing run in music merchandising, doing what he loves in an industry he was passionate about. Life on the road was fun, but not conducive to family life, so 15 years and several hundred live concerts later, Brian knew it was time to find his next passion.
"Do what you love and love what you do..."
Growing up, Brian's mom was a professional in the world of real estate, and that seemed like a natural starting place for his next move. Years of negotiating licensing contracts and managing multiple millions of dollars for the top names in the entertainment industry gave Brian a successful perspective on the importance of attention to detail while providing his clients with solutions that work.
