Like his colleagues, Brian is an avid sportsman. However, his preferences focus on the more traditional team sport-front and basketball remains his first love (although multiple ACL surgeries have limited his activity), while in college he was a three-year captain. Post ACL, Brian became a lover of all things golf and has made several pilgrimages to satisfy this craving (Ireland, Whistling Straits, Pebble Beach, Bandon Dunes).
