Brian received his multi-disciplinary Ph.D. in molecular biology and physiology from the University of Missouri. He then joined the faculty as a professor at a small liberal arts college, teaching biology courses (general biology, molecular biology, cell biology, and physiology). Brian then returned to the research track, with postdoctoral fellowships at UMass and Baylor College of Medicine. He was then on the faculty at the University of Nebraska for over 10 years, where he earned tenure while teaching and leading a research group. His research was funded by grants from the NSF and the USDA and by non-federal agencies. In addition to writing numerous grant applications and publications, he taught a course in Scientific Writing and Communication for seven semesters and founded a learning hub for graduate students, postdocs, and faculty. He has also delivered dozens of scientific writing workshops. Brian left his faculty position to become a full-time SBIR/STTR grant writer and writing coach.

As an SBIR/STTR grant writer and editor, Brian combines his interests in scientific and biomedical research with strong proposal and manuscript writing skills. He has worked on winning proposals on federal, state, and private projects and has helped his clients with funding from NSF, NIH, and the U.S. Departments of Energy and Agriculture.

Brian is available for grant and manuscript writing, editing, reviewing, and coaching. He has been a peer reviewer of more than 100 manuscripts for 30 different journals, an ad-hoc grant proposal reviewer for multiple agencies, and a grant panelist for NSF and USDA. Having written both academic and SBIR/STTR grant applications, Dr. Brian recognizes the similarities and differences between the two, and will ensure that each grant is tailored to the appropriate audience and agency.
