Brian believes that everyone deserves access to good design. The inspiration for starting Module came while he was directing Within Formal Cities – a documentary about the housing crisis in South America, which debuted in 2016. Prior to starting Module, Brian was a Fulbright Scholar in Santiago, Dominican Republic, where he led an urban design research initiative. He has lectured and given presentations for the American Institute of Architects, the Rockefeller Foundation, and numerous universities in the US and abroad. Brian has design experience in both the for-profit and nonprofit world. He worked in Blue Sky Department at Walt Disney Imagineering where he helped create new ride concepts for the Disney Parks, and he served as an architectural intern at the Gulf Coast Community Design Studio. Brian graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Architecture.
