Bryan was born and raised in Kansas, but moved to the northern Rockies after college, where he and his wife Dawn have lived ever since – the last 26 years in Missoula. They raised a girl and two boys of their own and now have two grandchildren. Two other youngsters who needed a home have also become a part of the family – and enriched their lives.
Bryan served on a school board in Missoula for 13 years and in 2013 began volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) in Missoula. Bryan has worked as an engineer in the oil business, environmental contracting and, for the last 20 years in his own environmental consulting business.
