Brian Tipton has been an American Sign Language interpreter for the last 18 years. He achieved his National Certification from the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf in 2008 and interprets in a variety of environments on a regular basis, including education, medical, mental health, court, and government contexts. He graduated from Crown College in 2005 and Crown Graduate school in 2006. He considers himself to be a bit of a nerd, since he loves Star Trek and all things sci-fi. Brian is also big into designer board games, cigars, and CrossFit. He has a beautiful wife who is a realtor, a 6-year-old son who recently broke the record for most questions asked to a parent by a child in a single day (as yet to be verified by the Guinness Book of World Records), two dogs, and a cat.
