As a new resident to the Reno/Tahoe area, Brian brings many years of his entrepreneurial expertise and management experience to MerchantsXL from Golden, Colorado. After successfully owning and operating his own painting business since 1994, Brian decided a change of scenery was in order and brought his outdoorsman spirit to our area to embrace a new industry. With his tireless work ethic, Brian has also gone through a rigorous 798 hour massage expert training course, graduating at the top of his class with a 3.9 GPA, and then taking it a step further by developing a 750 hour massage course and having it implemented by the Colorado Division of Private Occupational Schools. He personally taught that course for the Colorado Paramedical Esthetics and Massage Therapy School for 2 years before deciding to leave for Northern Nevada. A devoted outdoorsman, Brian enjoys snowboarding, white water rafting, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and playing the bass guitar in his spare time. He has an accomplished climbing resume with a 17,825 foot volcano in Mexico under his belt, as well as having summated eighteen of the 14,000+ foot mountains in Colorado. Brian currently resides in South Reno with his girlfriend and is embracing his new lifestyle with everything the Truckee Meadows area has to offer.
