Hello 👋

I'm Brian 📷 🎺🌈 📻

Currently: historian + Social Studies teacher.

Former: radio DJ, journalist, and elected official.


I'm married to my best friend. I'm dad to a lot of houseplants. I always stop to admire the neon.


I grew up in upstate New York, moved to Arizona when I was 19 for my undergrad and graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2003. After a career in broadcasting, I decided to do something better with my life - become a teacher. About ten years after earning my B.S. at NAU, I earned an M.A. in History. In 2018 I earned my MAT (Master of Arts in Teaching) from Clarkson University in 7-12 Social Studies.


I have a lot of tattoos, and almost as many houseplants. Yes, a lot of both. I almost always get excited to see neon signs but equally excited to take a hike in the woods. Ogunquit, Maine is my favorite place in the world and I make at least two pilgrimages there each year.


There's a lot more to who I am beyond what I can express in a profile, but thankfully this is a photography platform so I can tell the stories of my past, present, and even future through images that I hope you'll enjoy.
