“As the photographer, I am your most or least favorite person, depending on your comfort level in front of a camera.”
How I spend my days: I am a project manager for a large local health insurance company. I currently manage operational and compliance issues that affect our behavioral health business team.
One word to describe myself: Curious.
A surprising thing about me: My love of photography comes from my grandfather (who I actually never met). He was a very well known photographer in central MN during the first half of the 20th century, up until his death in 1948. You can still find examples of his work in historical societies around the area. I aspire to produce work that has as long of a legacy as his. Even my professional name, J. Briol Images is a nod to him (H.A. Briol Images).
What I do for fun: Take photos, lots and lots of photos.
Volunteer activities: In addition to ODCT, I volunteer my photo services for The Como Friends Foundation and Wags and Whiskers Animal Rescue of Minnesota
