Uncle to Lily & Graham. Dog Dad to Gus & Duncan.

Favorite Guiding Light Experiences:

Morning Ritual – especially when we have a talented drummer. And even more especially when one of the men is celebrating a sobriety milestone.

Favorite GLR lunch question:

Any of the questions during Vulnerability week. A good one is:

Adjectives that describe Brian:

Intentional. Kind. Resourceful.

One of Brian’s quirky loves:

Beef & noodles. especially when the kitchen manager sneaks me a to-go box from the kitchen ;- )
