Brian was scheduled to speak in December 2016 but that meeting was cancelled.

Brian lived an idyllic childhood. He was born in Orange County California and grew up in Burbank where his father worked as an accountant for Walt Disney. The family later moved to Ledyard, Connecticut and eventually moved to Lowville, NY. There his father died of cancer when Brian was 15, ending his ideal childhood and leaving him angry with God.

He believes the greatest purpose and fulfillment in life is to know Christ and make Him known.
