What’s with the “Dean” ?
If you’ve known me previously, you may be wondering why I’m including my middle name on my website and marketing materials.
It’s basically a way to distinguish myself from the many other “Brian Williams” that are out there in the world!
I’ve also often thought that my somewhat generic-sounding name doesn’t reflect the innovative, edgy, unique aspect of my self and my practice. I remember as a child I tried to “change” my name to Dean at school, only to realize a few weeks later it was equally generic. The two in combination? Feels like a better fit – for now.
On a side note, Brian Dean Williams also sounds like Billy Dee Williams, the actor who played Lando Callrissian in my favorite film of all time, Star Wars – which has been a guiding metaphor for me in many ways since childhood in the 1970s.
So there ya go, secret’s out!
Hope you’re enjoying the website.
