Bryan graduated from the United States Naval Academy with a Bachelors of Science in Naval Architecture in 2007. He then flew helicopters for HSC-9 off of the aircraft carrier USS G.H.W. BUSH. It was on the Bush that he was first exposed to intensive security situations, flying plane guard and Anti-Terrorism Force Protection flights for the carrier. He even escorted the carrier through the straights of Hormuz, coming into contact with armed Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps vessels and small craft.
Several years later, Bryan would return to the middle east to work for the US Navy Central Command Staff's Anti-Terrorism Force Protection Office. He also attended the DoD Anti-Terrorism Force Protection Planning training, which focused on assessing threats and designing systems and procedures in order to mitigate the potential damage from those threats.
He would use this training in the volatile Middle East Region to help drive policy and planning for all US Navy forces in the middle east. He worked with NCIS and the US Embassy staff of many Middle Eastern countries, including Qatar, Oman, Jordan, Bahrain, Kuwait, and the UAE, to liaise with the host countries to ensure US vessels pulling into various ports had the latest intel and threat information.
With the help of his brother Colin, Bryan started Billfodl.com in late 2017 and left the US Navy in 2018. Bryan is now head of Business Development and strategy at PrivacyPros.io
