Brian studied wildlife biology in college and never looked back. From volunteering with groups working to protect the Everglades, to mapping underwater springs, and expanding the renowned “Trout in the Classroom” program, his leadership has inspired thousands of people to get involved in protecting water resources. At DRBA, Brian’s classroom outreach has engaged over 10,000 students, and he continues to expand educational programs throughout the state. A paddler, photographer and budding videographer, his passion is working with kids and taking anyone on their first river trip. He is currently working on a new program to inspire the medical profession to write prescriptions compelling people for their health and well-being to recreate on and protect rivers.
