His foundation was built in the Ad world where he thrived for 15 years as Creative Director working on integrated campaigns for fortune 100 companies including Johnson & Johnson, Marriott, Pepsi, Major League Baseball to name a few. Bryan spent a portion of his career living life on the ’lance with a love for the intensity and variety that freelancing offered working at dozens of boutiques, digital shops, and big box agencies.

While working inside diverse agencies, it became clear that the existing model was begging for innovation. In 2011 he founded The Humans, a conscious brand consulting agency. Bryan designed a unique virtual agency model that allows for custom tailored teams to meet the project's needs by sourcing top talent from a diverse network.
This ensures that client gets the best people for the job and that the creatives are passionate and connected to the work.

As a New Yorker with a peripatetic penchant, community and natural organizational systems are a passion of Bryan's. This led him to co-found United Purpose, a diverse community of high caliber leaders. Designing and curating 50+ events since 2013, UP has held private tours of Christies, reverse panel evenings with NASA astronauts and a Zen Buddhist priestess. Needless to say it is Bryan's drive and creative vision that is his essence.
