Bryan is the founder of Fusebox, leading the company with over two decades of accomplishments. Bryan’s insight of technology, and focus on innovation, makes him an ideal leader of Fusebox’s unique digital, creative, and technical design teams. Bryan enjoys facing new challenges, and is inspired to create and optimize digital business solutions in an ever-changing industry.

Bryan is a native New Yorker, proudly raised in Brooklyn. He has a BFA in Graphic Design from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. A self-starter, his story “involves a lot of great people over the years.” In 1989 he established his first company, Twelve Point Rule—history in the making, they were one of the first studios to produce a fully digitally-designed magazine in the world of publishing.

The company’s reputation soared for the next decade, working in areas such as entertainment, sports, and fashion. Bryan has repeatedly proven himself a true digital visionary and industry pioneer by heading up a series of risk-defying startups, and by immersing himself in emerging mobile strategies, technologies, and social business design.

In 2006, he launched Empressr, a rich media SaaS that received immediate industry acclaim, and broke the mold for presentation software tools.

In addition to his ever-growing resume of digital and creative achievements, Bryan is widely respected for his work with the community. His involvement with organizations such as the Founder Institute speaks to his belief that successful startup incubation and development requires change and innovation. Eager to share his insight and knowledge, he has spoken regularly on marketing and branding to a variety of audiences.

Bryan is a design aficionado who enjoys living in “the greatest city in the world.” He balances his busy Manhattan lifestyle with his passion for photography, art, and biking. Bryan wants to be remembered as someone “who cared, created, and made a small difference in peoples’ lives.”

He has a special focus on financial institutions, having built long-term relationships with J.P. Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, and Deutsche Bank.

Rob has accomplished all of this by staying in close contact with our clients, from before proposal to after delivery, and maintaining a presence in the day-to-day management of their engagements—no matter how busy his schedule may be.

An active community member, Rob gives his time to several causes: The WEL Foundation, which helps fund other charities, with a focus on children, disabilities, and arts and culture; the Children’s Cancer Fund; and Edna’s Foundation of Hope.
