Brian Skarin

Brian Skarin joined the ThunderSEO team in the spring of 2011 as an in-house creative writer. Other than a background in Arts and Letters with a degree in Literature from SDSU, Brian brings a diverse range of interests and skills to assist the team in creating and developing top-notch content.

Before finding his way to Thunder, Brian put off college for a while and spent a year living out of a van with 4 friends in a touring rock band, worked in Hollywood as a creative consultant for a nationally televised reality program on the TruTV network, and surfed 10 foot waves across empty Mexican beaches. He gained the digital skills that led him to Thunder while editing a unique, interactive nomination blog for the largest philanthropic award show in the nation, the Classy Awards. The ever evolving world of SEO driven content and the collaborative, creative dynamic between the Thunder team keep each day fresh and exciting for the restless writer.

Outside of the ThunderSEO home base, Brian can usually be found surfing up and down the San Diego coastline, lounging with his boxer, Charlie, in their backyard of Ocean Beach, and developing a keen appreciation for San Diego’s stellar craft beers through vigorous, meticulous research.
