    Prior to Financial Genome, Bryan founded the start-up Lendalytics which attempted to improve the credit scoring process to give consumers, especially young adults, a fairer assessment of their credit worthiness based on their merit and not their age. Bryan is also on the board of brass MEDIA Inc., a personal finance media company which he co-founded in 2003.

     

    Over the course of different companies, Bryan has received media attention from the likes of Entrepreneur, Bloomberg and American Public Media while receiving honors such as the Governor’s Award for Financial Education and making the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing private companies.

     

    Outside of the entrepreneurial world, Bryan is married to his amazing wife who is a Nurse, and they recently had a son. While not being completely sleep deprived due to having a newborn, you can find Bryan at some of the local Python and Data Science meet-ups or hanging out with friends through Starve-Ups.
