Through his current company, Digital Realty, Brian has served the retail industry as technology and business consultant for the past 8 years; selling, implementing, training, and supporting retail Omnichannel technologies.

In researching the Cannabis Industry, largely because of its Federal status and history in the US, he was fascinated in seeing what the entrepreneurs were building. With his experience as an entrepreneur, supporting entrepreneurship, some background in broadcast radio, and a love for amazing medium of podcasts (especially "How I built this" by Guy Raz); all converged to create the spark moment that spawned Lit Up Founders.
