My name is Brian Ward, and I am a 24 year old balloon artist in Philadelphia, PA. When I was 14, my parents became entrepreneurs; my dad bakes cakes and my mom is an event planner. I grew up with a really independent mindset, so I was already trying to figure out how to make money for myself at that age, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. After asking my dad for suggestions, he suggested that I become a clown (haha), a face painter, a magician, or a balloon artist. In October of 2017, I finally decided to take on balloon artistry full-time, and that is how The Baby Bear Brand was born.
