Brian grew up in a small borough outside of a small city in eastern Pennsylvania. As soon as he got his driver's license, he started going to see his favorite rock bands (Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Pearl Jam, Slayer, Sleater-Kinney to name a few) and quickly realized that he wanted to spend as much time traveling as possible. After earning his bachelor's degree in Management/Marketing from Penn State University, he started traveling overseas and has since traveled to 48 countries spanning 5 different continents. Brian is an urban explorer who loves using public transportation. His four favorite American cities are New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and Boston. He's a lover of food and history who has been to every state except for Alaska. Paraguay and Russia are at the top of his bucket list. If you need advice on where to get the best pizza or French macarons, Brian would love to help!
