For the past 20+ years, Brian has earned his stripes in a variety of creative positions within the ranks of corporate America. He is, among other things, an award-winning writer & video producer and a former Walt Disney Imagineer, where he helped create the magic for virtually all of Disney's Florida theme parks. At various times in his career, the Doc has produced work for Virgin Atlantic Airways, Anheuser Busch Theme Parks, The Orlando Shakespeare Festival, The Miami Dolphins, The Tribune Co., and AAA's (the American Automobile Association) National Office. All these jobs involved the use of strategic marketing and multimedia technology in one way or another. He has also served on the faculty of Full Sail University as a Course Director, where he developed and taught a class on creativity in business entitled "Visionary Development" as well as a course on entrepreneurship.
