Brian grew up in Sao Paulo, Brazil as the son of protestant missionaries. This indelible childhood experience helped shape his world view and guide his vocational path.
Most recently Brian has served as the Director of Development at Lifewater International where he directed campaigns in support of clean water projects in vulnerable regions of the globe. For the last 15 years, Brian has been busy managing strategic fundraising efforts for cause-driven nonprofit organizations, including World Vision, The Salvation Army and skid row’s LA Mission. He has a passion for presenting critical needs to broad audiences and enlisting vital support. Brian also served as the Associate Pastor for Ministry Outreach and Strategic Growth at Damascus Church, Seal Beach.
Married to Lishelle, his college sweetheart, and a proud daddy to Cambria Faith, there is nothing he relishes more than meaningful escapes from the Southern California “bubble” with his family. Outreach trips to Guatemala, Ecuador, Panama, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Dominican Republic and Mexico have made deposits that will last a lifetime and beyond.
Brian currently resides in Seal Beach, CA.
