On New Year’s Eve in 2010, Brian found the two loves of his life on the very same dancefloor: his now-fiancée, Christine, and gloving. That night, he took $100 out of his pocket and made it his mission to pioneer gloving into a legitimate artform through EmazingLights, while simultaneously growing fashionable sister brand iHeartRaves with Christine. Brian began throwing gloving events out of the trunk of his car, thus beginning the “Friday Night Lights” tradition.
Brian grew EmazingLights / iHeartRaves / IntoTheAM into a 50+-person company with over $30 million in revenue. He was named a top entrepreneur by Inc., who calculated that EmazingLights was the 189th fastest-growing company in 2014 on their annual “Inc. 5000” list. Brian appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank and got an offer from all five sharks; he was also called the best entrepreneur to ever appear on the show after six seasons.
