Brian has spent his career working to create a better world through advertising. At 180, he was behind Boost Mobile’s Boost Your Voice campaign, which turned Boost Mobile stores into voting stations in low-income neighborhoods to combat unequal voting access. The campaign earned AdAge’s inaugural Campaign of the Year award, two Grands Prix and a Titanium Lion at Cannes, a Grand Clio, and a Gold Effie.

His work on University of Phoenix brought the school back to its roots to make higher education more accessible for working adults. One notable effort succeeded in inspiring women to join the male-dominated tech industry, boosting female IT enrollment by 38% in one year.

Before 180, he was at RPA where he conceived several initiatives for Honda that changed lives and communities. From an effort that saved 27+ drive-in theaters from closing to helping an unknown band who made a music video in their Hondas land a gig on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Brian has been named to AdAge’s “Creatives to Watch,” AdWeek’s “Creative 100,” Marcomm’s “Magnificent Advertising Creatives” and Business Insider’s “Most Creative People in Advertising.”
