Variety is the spice of life. Swim. Bike. Run.

Hi, I'm Brian and I am the Senior Director of Innovation for Life Time. I think the only right answer to the question "Who wants to ride bikes?" is "Yes!". At Life Time I lead the Labs team, where we experiment with everything from wearables to face recognition to Internet of Things in our fitness clubs. Outside of work and riding I enjoy running, skiing, traveling with the family and board games. After 16 years in Minnesota I've come to think the Twin Cities metro is a great place to live.
