Bryan is our ReStore Director, which means he oversees everything that goes on at the store, supports our staff team, and implements plans to help the store grow and flourish.
“How I think of it is that I am the glue that helps keep everything together,” Bryan said. “I’m basically here to bring everybody together in one common goal.”
Before joining our team, Bryan wasn’t familiar with the ReStore.
“I didn’t really know what the store was until I came in for my first interview, and I was pleasantly surprised,” he said. “I love going to work and feeling like I have a purpose and I’m making the world a better place.”
There are several elements of his job that Bryan appreciates and enjoys. He said that from the beginning, he felt welcomed by everyone on the ReStore team. He also loves organization, and he enjoys getting to see parts of the store become more cleaned up and organized.
“It’s nice to get a whole department or section looking good,” he said. “That’s a physical representation of your hard work.”
Bryan’s work is also driven by a passion for Habitat’s mission.
“I love the overall mission of getting affordable housing to people, and helping people buy things for their homes—that’s what we’re here for. And we keep so much out of the landfills.”
When Bryan isn’t working at the ReStore, he’s spending time with his family, playing computer games, or hanging out with his two dogs, Gizmo and Crypto. In Bryan’s word’s, “My two children have four legs, and I love them to death. They’re everything to me.”
We are so grateful for Bryan and the positivity, energy, and joy that he brings to the ReStore team. Thank you for being a part of the Habitat family, Bryan!
