Bryan (36) is a lifelong gamer and Michigan native. Bryan was part of one of the first ever video game radio shows that aired in the Detroit market from 2007-2012. In 2017, after spending several years in finance, he joined a family eyecare business.
He saw plenty of companies making “gamer glasses” but always just brushed it off as another snake oil sales pitch. As a gamer and type one diabetic, Bryan also struggled with sleep. After spending a significant amount of time learning, researching, and testing a variety of eyewear, lenses and supplements. In the end there was one lens Bryan tested that he truly believed helped him sleep better. In his heart, he knew he had no choice but to bring that product to the industry in an attempt to help gamers sleep better, so they can game longer. He founded Gamer Advantage in 2019, and took on the role of CEO on July 1st, 2021.
Bryan lives with his wife, two children (also gamers) just two miles away from the Gamer Advantage Headquarters. His favorite video game is Red Dead Redemption 2. When he isn’t gaming you will find him golfing, fishing, or traveling with this family.

Hey I’m Kaitlyn, or Kait! I was born and raised in Chicago, IL and originally had pursued a career in music education. Through my community management efforts that started in 2017 while still relatively new to the gaming space, I began the journey that led me to where I am today. My move to Houston, TX really spearheaded the independence and drive to really lean into my passions and turn them into a full time job. Through my most recent years of employment I have built, implemented, and grown some of the strongest partnership programs for brands with a gamer-centric audience. Building substantial and communicative relationships with the partners has always been my main focus, and stand by that sentiment still today. My first introduction to Gamer Advantage was through a friend who was partnered in Spring of 2020. Shortly after, I was a partnered creator myself and have been wearing GA prescription glasses since Summer 2020! I am excited to bring my experience, efforts, and skills to Gamer Advantage and work alongside a team that I have looked up to for so long.
