Travel has been at the center of Brian's life, start as a young child. Summer trips were a hallmark of exploration; Brian's desire to see the world began to develop. Brian has traveled to over 20 countries within the last 2 years, working towards the 30 countries by 30 years old.

Through all of his travels, the power of cards and points has fueled his ability to travel freely. Brian now conducts seminars, workshops, and can be found speaking to the public in order to help share techniques and tips on how others can take advantage of these resources.

Outside of Brian's travel interest, Brian is the Executive Director of the BLF Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit offering annual scholarships and a year long mentorship for college students, developing emotional intelligence, and soft skills. Brian is also the CEO/Co-Founder of Elevation Firm, a Creative Agency that helps develop brands, and improve advertising and marketing strategies for countless businesses.
