Brian was born and raised in Elkhart and St. Joseph counties.  A lover of sports, Brian played Basketball, Baseball and Football while attending Penn High School. He went on to play Baseball at Valparaiso University where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Sports Management. He moved forward with his baseball career playing for several teams in the Minor Leagues. 

Brian met his wife, Danielle, in 2010 and started working for Praxis Group, a division of Patrick Industries, shortly thereafter in 2011. Brian and Danielle, were married on St. Pete Beach with their toes in the sand in 2013. They welcomed the arrival of their daughter, Harper now age 4, in July of 2015. Their world then spun when they learned Danielle was pregnant, with TWINS. They welcomed their sons, Knox and Braxton age 18 months, in spring of 2018. As crazy as the days are, Brian and Danielle stay rooted with their faith and share a deep love for their family and friends.

Apparently, you can’t wear cleats dancing, so Brian’s athletic ability may not help him out a whole lot. A big “thank you” to Kayla (Brian’s dance partner) for her unwavering patience since the only thing Brian can swing is a bat or an occasional golf club.  Also, a big shout out and thank you to everyone at That’s Dancing Studio and the Samaritan Center for all you do!

ABOUT Still Dancing in Elkhart 2019

Still Dancing in Elkhart is in its 11th season raising funds to support The Samaritan Center in Elkhart.  The Center was founded by the First Presbyterian Church of Elkhart in 1972.  It is the founding Center for the Solihten Institute (FKA The Samaritan Institute) and a network of 44 other Centers around the country.  Still Dancing in Elkhart started during the Great Recession in 2009.  It has brought financial healing to the Center and subsequent growth in serving the community. 

The Center’s mission is to be the expression of the love of God by helping people under stress.  The Center provides high level, spiritually integrated, mental health counseling to people of all ages, whatever their faith background might be. 

This event will provide fee assistance to help ensure access for those who could otherwise not afford services.  The success of this event is directly responsible for the Center growth in size and ministry over the last 10 years.  In 2019 we expect to work with over 500 individuals, couples, and families and almost a third of them will have some level of fee assistance to support counseling hours.

Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.
