Brian has been involved in alpacas since 2001 with the start of his 1st farm on Vashon Island, Washington. From day one, he offered alpaca products to answer the very important question, “What do you do with them?” He was also a professional alpaca shearer in the Pacific Northwest.
After a 2nd farm in Battleground, Washington, Brian moved to San Diego and has since focused on alpaca product development. Choice Alpaca Products allows Brian to find and create new and exciting alpaca products which promote alpaca and help small alpaca farms further profit from their enterprise. Though Choice Alpaca Products offers products from many countries, Brian has a passion for American made alpaca products and has designed, created, and offered many new products which use American alpaca fiber. Choice’s current FiberCall program purchases American grown alpaca fiber for further production of USA made alpaca products.
When not working with alpaca, Brian is an avid long distance motorcycle traveler and rode to this conference with his fiancée Paula from San Diego.
