Brian was raised in Texas and grew up with a love of the outdoors. During his first career, he spent almost 20 years in the oil and gas industry. His primary focus was financial services related to the oil and gas exploration business. He spent the majority of his time managing investments for high-net-worth investors. In 2002, he founded an oil and gas exploration company and placed approximately $100,000,000 of investment capital in various exploration projects across the United States.
In 2011, Brian began investing in the exotic wildlife industry. As a result, he co-founded Wildlife Partners in April of 2016. As an entrepreneur, hunter and conservationist, his love for wildlife has led Brian to create an innovative model that marries wildlife conservation with capitalism. Wildlife Partners is today the largest breeder of exotic wildlife in the United States. The company has amassed more than 10,000 acres and is breeding 60 species with more than 3000 animals.
