Brian thought he was an art student once-upon-a-time, then he figured out that art is actually any form of communication, whether it's personal or directed at a population. During his second (and successful) try at the university, he found a love for copywriting and marketing communication. He realized his personal projects (making fliers for bands, passing on information about the new, cool things) were one in the same: mass communication. Brian understands relevancy is the most important tool for engaging an audience. He crafts his creative output to be engaging to its intended audience by using language and tone that they can easily digest, understand and take action on. While in school, he interned with a small marketing company who worked pro bono publico for a non-profit community health center. His care in crafting relevant messages for the center led to a part-time and then a full-time position directing communication for the organization. During his time at the clinic, he wrote hundreds of social media posts, edited and advised on the CEO's blog, wrote and designed fliers, advertisements, and other marketing collateral and created press releases. Ensuring the center had positive and continued media coverage was paramount as there was little money for engaging the community. Unfortunately, in June, 2013 he was laid off. Now, he plans to continue meaningful, engaged writing with those outside of the non-profit sphere. He is competent writing headlines, strategic advertising tag lines and detailed, technical copy. Brian is also versed in design, video editing and illustration.
