About


Welcome! Thanks for visiting my tiny corner of the internet. My name is Brian Stechschulte. Yup, my last name is a doozy. Think of it as two words, stek and schulte. Then combine them into one three syllable pronunciation. It’s not so bad.

I grew up in Michigan, but currently live in California. If you haven’t already browsed my site, you’ll notice I have a diverse set of interests, including art, design, and photography. My work life has been spent in the craft beer industry since 2012. I turned a graduate level art education into a marketing career. I didn’t take a cookie cutter path and I’m proud of it.

If you have any questions or just want to connect, please head over to the contact page. You can also follow me on Instagram or LinkedIn. Lastly, check out my Journal page for infrequent posts about new creative work and inspiration.
