Brian La Belle

BRIAN works in higher education and recently returned to Chicago after living in Los Angeles since 2008. Growing tired of consistently fantastic weather and beautiful people he left his Uggs behind and settled back into everything he loves about the Midwest: unhealthy food, seasons and original body parts on his neighbors.
