Brian Vennen graduated from LSU in 1999 with a degree in Management Information Systems. For the last 20 years, he has worked doing software development and data analytics in the financial/insurance industry focusing on health insurance for the majority of that time. He belongs to a large family who has a love for the outdoors. Hunting, fishing, barbecuing, woodworking, and welding (not well) are some of the things he enjoys doing. If there’s something to be built, he’s probably got the tools to do it. He also loves to cook for people and smokes all the barbecue served at the annual St George Fair.
