About Brian

Working to help those in need

Brian makes strong connections with all the organizations he works with. Providence Mount St. Vincent in West Seattle is a great example. Brian has MC’ed the “Black Tie Bingo for Providence Mount St. Vincent for the past 16 years.

Brian’s kids are proud graduates of the “ILC,” and he’s proud to be part of Providence’s fundraising efforts.
