Brian has been working full-time with families since 1993. He has had the privilege of speaking at more than 600 conferences, schools, churches, and camps. He has lead student and parent programs from coast to coast as well as several international locations. Brian is a prolific writer for parenting magazines, most notably Parenting Teenagers, Parent Life, and Homeschooling Today with more than 80 articles published. He is the author of four books: Engaging Your Teen’s World, Tech Savvy Parenting, How You Always Meant to Parent, and Teen Savvy Parenting.

After serving for thirteen years in positions ranging from a youth pastor to a camp director to a school administrator, Brian stepped out and created 360 Family in September 2004.

360 Family exists to encourage and equip parents in understanding the world of their teens/tweens and how to walk with their teen into the culture in living a life that is honoring of themselves, those around them, and their faith. His passion is connecting the hearts of parents to those of their teens and connecting teens to the heart of God.
