Brian is a graduate of MIT, where he became a Christian. After university, Brian ran his own IT consulting firm in Montreal, serving such clients as Air Canada, Bombardier, and ALDO. In 2001, he chose to pursue God’s call to ministry, passing over scholarships to the Wharton MBA program and Stanford Law School (among others). From 2003 to 2008, Brian helped plant New City Church in South Philadelphia while completing his Master of Divinity at the Westminster Theological Seminary. He is an ordained minister and an approved church-planter of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).
Since his move to Toronto in 2011, Brian has become a proud Torontonian. His conversion from the Habs to the Leafs was easier than expected. He enjoys movies and TV shows like Dr. House and Grey’s Anatomy. For music, he can tolerate Lady Gaga, but prefers Bach. He devours the Toronto Star and the Toronto Life. Places he loves include the TIFF LightBox, High Park, Toronto Island, and the Harbourfront. Brian and his wife Ming have two lovely children: Annette and Iain.
