Hey! I'm Brian and new to this world of Airbnb which looks like quite the opportunity for a great adventure. I currently reside in the Old Town district of beautiful downtown Portland, Oregon and have lived here for the past 6 years as a transplant from Detroit. My passion for intriguing, challenging, interesting, and multi-cultural driven experience dictates that I celebrate anyone or any enterprise whose purpose is founded in a deep respect for quality and idealism. I have shared my experience from conducting free-format radio programs while working at the highly acclaimed NPR affiliate in Detroit, WDET FM to my current role as Lounge and Production Manager at the world renowned Doug Fir Lounge concert venue here in Portland. Although extremely dedicated to my work I am also a pedestrian, hiker, certifiable minimalist, amateur photographer, rookie typographer, mid-century furniture lover and a Mark Rothko, Erik Satie, Radiolab, and Bill Hicks devotee. I am calm, genuine, honest, and sweet and am simply looking to expand my traveling horizons. I'm proud to say that I do not have a grand online presence and try my best to resist living life through the screen. I'm reserved, quiet, and am a critic of everything but when all is said and done, I'm fun as all get out.
