Howdy.  I am Brian.  I am a life long learner, avid DIY-er, and self-proclaimed ambassador to the future.

I created Back-to-Basics as a way to motivate myself into becoming the change I wish to see in the world.  The best way to learn is to teach. So as I evolve along my enlightened path, I hope to also share with you what I have learned.  I have arrived at this junction of my life through what I feel is unmistakeable divine design. 

"Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple."
