Brian’s roots are in East Tennessee where he grew up in Clinton. His mom, dad, and brother all recently moved to Nashville to be closer as a family, but they were a Southern Gospel singing group from as far back as he can remember. The family toured the hills of East Tennessee with a guitar, piano, and four-part harmony. He later went to Carson-Newman University, where he started more formal training in music and communications. He completed his master’s degree at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. In the late’90s, Brian accepted a job in Nashville’s music industry to later transition into the real estate field in 2005. Brian says he loves being a REALTOR® because it’s one of the truest portals into community service and gratitude. As a board member of Hands On Nashville, Greenways for Nashville, and Metro Nashville’s Farmers Market Commission, he is a true advocate for neighborhood issues and his city’s infrastructure. He and his spouse, Greg, founded one of the only food pantries in North Nashville, feeding more than 175 families each month. In 2014, the pantry won the Mary Catherine Strobel Volunteer of the Year Award. They live on a farm in Madison with their two children, Micah (5) and Esther (3).
