Brian Rose is the Founder & Host of London Real. Originally from California he moved to England thirteen years ago to be an investment banker in the City of London and holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
After accomplishing huge success in the world of banking he had an epiphany while staying at Richard Branson’s chalet in Switzerland: he hated his work, his life, and himself. So he resigned and created London Real. But it wasn’t that simple: his journey was fraught with self-doubt, peer-pressure, and life-defining struggles.
