Brian began his career as an Architect after graduating from the University of Houston with a Bachelors in Architecture. After working for a few architecture firms in Houston, the financial crisis of 2009 forced a career change. A friend in tax consulting suggested he use his knowledge of the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industries to assist companies in identifying Research and Development (R&D) tax credits. In 2010, Brian traded his T-Square and AutoCAD for a copy of the IRS code and a calculator and has not looked back.
Prior to starting TaxIncennovations in 2016 and being a Partner in a previous firm, Brian gained his experience from one of the nation’s largest provider of specialty tax credit & incentives services. Starting out as a project manager, he worked with clients primarily in the AEC industry ranging from 10 million to 2 billion in revenue. Brian was promoted several times throughout his tenure and left as a Director in the implementation department. During his time as a Director, Brian managed a team of 25 plus project managers, project coordinators and administrative staff. At any given time, his team was responsible for 400+ studies and 45,000,000 million in revenue. Additionally, he led studies for some of the company’s largest clients with gross revenues exceeding 2 billion
