Bio

Bryan Ferre became Chief Evangelist at Vivos in 2017, just three years after his wife of fifteen years died suddenly and unexpectedly from sleep apnea. Bryan brings over twenty-five years of experience in executive creative roles. Bryan is the consummate evangelist. His passion for the Vivos mission is evidenced in everything he does. Bryan’s storied career began as a humble graphic designer. He has a keen eye for great design and he recognizes the importance of communicating a clear and concise brand story. Bryan is a story teller – on one of the thousands of impassioned phone calls each week or as he contemplates the Vivos story in words, graphics or on film. In 2019, at age 50, Bryan returned to school to obtain a doctorate in Natural Medicine. As an artist, this meant starting over. Bryan’s passion for alternative healthcare and his mission to rid the world of sleep apnea dictate hard things. This is not hard.
