Brian November 23 2020

When Brian moved from Chicago to Portland, he answered an ad in the Oregonian for a rug washer, fell in love with rugs, and has worked in the field ever since. Twenty plus years later, he is still romanced by the art and craft of rugs. Outside of the gallery, he loves to spend time with family, reading, and singing karaoke. Oh, and some say he plays a mean game of ping pong.

Perfect PDX Day:
Two cups of black coffee, a work out, followed by a leisurely brunch at Industry. (There is more coffee.) In the afternoon, a family outing to PGE Park to cheer the Timbers to victory with a local IPA in hand. That night Grandpa watches the kiddo, so Brian and his wife can dine out. The perfect day is capped off by belting out karaoke at the Ambassador. (Ideally there is a nap in there somewhere.)

Dream Trip:
Brian loves to travel to source rugs! He loves the people, the food, and the adventure of searching out the perfect piece, or the right partner to make an original Kush design. Outside of work trips, he is most relaxed on a quiet island under a palapa, half reading, half sleeping, the lulling sounds of the ocean in the air. Zzz...

Cats or dogs?
Ummm… both! Brian has a German Shepherd named Luka who watches over the house and a Lynx Point Balinese named Nora, aka ‘the Duchess”. Nora will play fetch, but puddy’s main talent is cuddling.


We'd love to invite you to our next event.
