As Vice President, Public Relations, Brian collaborates with clients and Walker Sands team members to continuously build positive brand narratives. A natural storyteller with a background in journalism, Brian is passionate about digging into all areas of a brand’s story and finding angles and approaches that will resonate with the media.
A graduate of the University of Florida with degrees in English and telecommunications-news, Brian started his career in local television news as an assignment manager at WCJB TV20 News in Gainesville and then at Bay News 9, the 24-hour local news station in the Tampa Bay area. In 2012, Brian moved to Chicago and officially jumped to the “dark side” of public relations with No Limit Agency. He joined Walker Sands in 2020.
When he’s not busy supporting clients at Walker Sands, you can find Brian running on the lakefront path, traveling, or visiting friends or his family back in Florida. Brian is a lover of all things comedy, enjoys a glass of red wine and once made Larry King laugh.
