Our goal is to bring world-leading TED talks to Monmouth County in an all-day live event that inspires us to learn and think about the future of our home on the shore.

Organizer, TEDxNavesink

Brian grew up in the lowest lying house in Rumson, so he feels at home near salt water. Brian was the founder of three award-winning software companies in Cupertino, San Francisco, and Seattle, and he is currently the co-founder of TEDxNavesink, Expert Open, and Alpha Venture Partners. Brian studied religion, literature, and strategy at Swarthmore, Trinity College Dublin, and Booz & Co. Ask Brian about salad gardening, track bike racing, surfski, kayaking, TED, non-fiction theater, or venture capital.
