Brian grew up in suburban NJ. He was diagnosed with ADHD at six years old. He moved away, graduated from Tulane University with a Philosophy degree and a honed talent for writing. In 2016, he was interviewed by Fox 5 NY about his ADHD memoir & personal experience with Adderall addiction. I actually have Brian’s book on my desk right now! He’s a successful entrepreneur, continues to be very outspoken about society's miscomprehension of ADHD and is helping to change the conversation! Now living in NYC with his wife Lindsey, Brian loves to travel, lift weights, talk philosophy at bars, and enjoys spending time with family & friends. He spends a little of his time here with us today. Enjoy!
