Brian grew up in the “burbs” of Dallas and graduated from Irving High School in 1971. A knee injury during his junior year of high school ended hopes of participating in small college basketball so he focused all of his energies on newspaper and commercial photography. Brian’s mother, Vonnie, worked as an editor for the Irving Daily News and Brian photographed numerous assignments for the paper including covering Dallas Cowboys football games as a sideline photographer.
During Brian’s freshman year of high school, a medical doctor persuaded his father and five other individuals that the cure for their diabetes was the surgical removal of their pituitary glands. Keith Andersen was the last of the five test victims to die. The loss of his father from this controversial medical procedure two weeks after Brian’s high school graduation made him acutely and painfully aware of the shortcomings of traditional western medicine.
After the first semester of his freshman year, Brian transferred from East Texas State University to the University of Missouri at Columbia to pursue his dream of photographing assignments for the National Geographic Magazine. His advisor was Missouri photojournalism instructor Cliff Edom who coined the word photojournalism and had placed over 10 of his students with the National Geographic photo staff over a 40-year teaching career. Unfortunately, Edom was forced into retirement during Brian’s sophomore year and replaced with as award winning newspaper photographer, Angus McDougal.
Due to his very strong portfolio, Brian was one of the youngest staff photographer interns to work for a major metropolitan newspaper during the summers of 1972 and 1973. An odd set of circumstances set the foundation for Brian having a spot news picture he took to be published on the front page the very first day he reported for work at the Dallas Times Herald.
Subtle Energy Research
With his journalism background, Brian entered the fields of chemistry, physics and alternative health care as an investigator seeking the truth rather than a student seeking a passing grade. Brian was free to take any kind of risks and follow all kinds of paths and he did not care what others thought about his theories, directions, methods, or goals.
The starting gun had fired for the marathon that was to become Tri-Vortex Technology.
