What makes Brian different
Brian lives just outside of downtown Dallas with his wife and four children. They reside at their home that is currently owned and run by their German Shepherd, who charges rent in the form of several chew toys and dog treats each month. Brian considers it a fair price for the neighborhood. When he’s not spending time with his family, he is an avid fan of college football.
