Brian was born and raised in New Jersey where he spent much of his youth playing basketball. After graduating from Rutgers University with a degree in philosophy and music, he moved to San Francisco to work with YWAM, where he met his wife Ruthie.
As the Parent & Family Support Coordinator, Brian seeks to love and serve the parents and families of our congregation. He is particularly passionate about providing places and tools for families to grow in maturity, depth, and wisdom so they may thrive in our city.
Brian and Ruthie have two sons, Keilan and Phoenix, and are committed to raising their family in the Castro — where they believe God has called them to put down roots.
