Beginning his professional career as a Furniture Maker at Newell Design, and Exhibit Designer for the Children’s Museum of Denver, Brian eventually decided that he’d like a break from the Colorado winters, and found exactly that on the US Virgin Island of St. John. Here, he developed his skills as a surfer, sailor, beach bum, but most importantly, managed several privately owned vacation properties, performed maintenance and renovations at several full-time residences, and began his concept for Custom Candle Holders.
Upon return from the Caribbean, Brian immediately sought a position as the Sales Manager at Trade Show Emporium, where he honed his skills as a salesman, graphic designer, and shipping / logistics guru to insure that customers receive their display on time, without delays. With the experience gained at Trade Show Emporium, Brian then branched out to begin Custom Candle Holders. Custom Candle Holders manufactures a variety of wood base, canvas shade LED Tea Light Candle Holders. They also offer the option to add a custom screen printed logo to the canvas shade, adding a customized image to the candle holder.
In 2013 Brian had the opportunity to start RiNo Sign Works with Willis Wood. This gave him a place to shine and show how well he excels at both design and production. When Brian is not busting out amazing signs he can be found on the slopes shredding, spending time with his friends, or working on his house.
