Here are some more fun facts about Bryan:
Were you a college athlete?
Yes. Before settling down at ASU, I played soccer at South Mountain CC then finished up at Aurora University in Aurora, IL. I came home to ASU once soccer was over, and finally settled on a major.
Favorite vacation you’ve been on?
St. Lucia was a great trip for our honeymoon. But a trip to Australia for a soccer tournament when I was 15 was an amazing experience of landscape and culture.
Pfft, chicken wings. Can’t stop won’t stop.
Favorite way to spend your free time?
I am all over the place. I have too many hobbies and unfinished projects. But you can find me; working out, running, building custom lights, woodworking or finding my next “passion” to annoy my wife with.
Do you have any pets? How many? What kind? Names?
Cassie. She is a 13-year-old Boxer/Ridgeback that I’ve had since she was 4 weeks old.
Christmas. Not for the presents, but for the season, the reason, and the time off!
Favorite local restaurant?
Does Filiberto’s count? I’m not hip to what’s hot, remember, I have a one-year-old. Otherwise, Delux Burger has been a long-lasting favorite.
Best thing about living in Arizona?
One season in Phoenix year-round, but all four seasons are less than an hour away.
