Brooke Buffington

Backstage Manager
Brooke is Brian’s partner in life. She’s the behind-the-scenes-but-front-of-the-boat, captain-esque, ship-steerer. A sort of backstage manager, if you will. Brooke is a writer, business owner, life-long learner, creator, and marketing guru, sharing inspiration and spouting off ridiculousness on the regular. She also prides herself in the highly esteemed (and coveted) position as Brian’s personal stylist and nutritionist, making sure this techni-colored (sports)coat show goes on…and on…and on.
