Brian grew up in Valleyview where he spent most of his time playing sports and enjoying time with his family. Brian graduated as part of the 2005 class of Hillside High School. While in high school Brian participated in cross country running, volleyball, badminton, track and field, and the business club.

After Brian graduated he attended Grande Prairie Regional College in the two-year transfer program to the University of Alberta. While at GPRC, Brian joined the badminton and cross country running teams.

Brian transferred to the University of Alberta in the fall of 2007. Focusing on his academic pursuits, Brian successfully gained admission to the physiotherapy program. Brian continued his studies and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (2009) and a Masters of Science in Physiotherapy (2011). 

Since completing his formal education, Brian has continued to increase his knowledge by participating in weekend courses, online education, workshops, conferences, and continuous reading of text books and journal articles. Brian is currently enrolled in the Sport Physiotherapy Canada accreditation program, working towards his certificate.

Brian pursues an active lifestyle by participating in badminton, running, outdoor, adventure, and weightlifting activities. Brian's most recent accomplishment athletically was completing the Canadian Death Race as a soloist in 2015. Brian believes the body is an incredible system which needs to be challenged. Brian continues to challenge his body in a variety of activities while encouraging others to do the same. 

Brian is most proud of his family. He has been married for seven years and has three wonderfully energetic children (3, 2, & 2 months). If Brian ever seems exhausted, he is and he's sorry.
