Brian is a program, staging, choreographer, visual designer, as well as an adjudicator and consultant. He is also involved in circuit administration, currently serving as President of the Board of Directors for the Southern Association for Performance Arts. In addition to pageantry, Brian also brings 21 years of experience in the field of education, and works for Pearson as an Education Specialist. He is most passionate about being a husband to his wife Jennifer, and father to his 12 year old daughter McKinley, 10 year old son Maddox, 3 year old son Mays, and Mollie, the 9 month old Goldendoodle.
Brian is excited for a second year with Crossmen!
