Brian began his career in social work. During grad school, Brian realized his “strengths and passions are in building and improving roads, rather than repairing individual cars.” So, he shifted to the nonprofit sector where he focuses on volunteer management and community engagement. With the United Way of Greater Los Angeles, Brian oversees a year-round calendar of signature volunteer opportunities and coordinates custom volunteer opportunities for corporate partners.
