Brian is an Unreasonable Fellow. Brian was part of Project Literacy Lab 2017.
Brian is the founder and CEO of Edovo, which seeks to reduce recidivism, improve correctional operations, and increase opportunities for inmates and officers through tablet technology. This passion was planted at an early age as he would listen to the stories and challenges of inmates from his father who taught at Folsom Prison. It was rekindled in his first year of a JD/MBA program at Northwestern University when he began work on a Social Impact Bond initiative for America’s largest single-site jail in Chicago. This exposure enabled him to formulate the Edovo platform, which is successfully operating in correctional facilities across the country and has won first place awards such as Chicago Tech Week 2014, Kellogg Innovation Network, as well as grants from the MacArthur Foundation and others. He earned a B.S. in Economics and Business from Brigham Young University and is committed to making serious changes through technology in corrections and re-entry.
