About Brian


Brian is a junior at the George Washington University majoring in Human Services and Social Justice. In his third year as the curator and organizer of TEDxFoggyBottom, Brian acquires and manages all speakers and performers and leads and directs the team and logistics of the event. He is incredibly passionate about community building and projects, one of which was brining Candy Chang's Before I Die Wall public space art exhibit to the GW campus last spring. Recently, Brian finished his 365 Days of Thank You project, a journey based on gratitude, and spoke about it at TEDxYouth@SanDiego; the very first TEDx event he helped to create in high school. Outside of the TED world, Brian loves chocolate milk, Batman, and watching Ellen surprise fans on her show.
