Fine Homebuilding and Green Building Advisor's editorial director Brian Pontolilo has combined a few of his passions to make a career of 18 years—and counting. Brian is equally excited by multi-media journalism, print magazines, architecture, home building, and building science. He has a degree in professional writing and has worked on-and-off in landscape construction, as a painter, and as a carpenter. However, he has spent most of the last two decades working as an editor at FHB while remodeling a home in northwest Connecticut. Brian left FHB in 2018, spent the winter building cabinets, relocated to Charleston, SC, and came back to the Taunton Press as editor of GBA in 2019. In 2020, Brian became editorial director of both FHB and GBA for the second time.
