Dr. Brown was born in Northern California but raised in Los Angeles. While in high school, he competed in basketball and volleyball. He received his B.S. in physical education from East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee. He completed his graduate work and obtained his Ed.D. from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. While a graduate assistant, he was responsible for isokinetic performance testing specifically designed to determine human responses to high velocity training. Dr. Brown joined the faculty at Cal State Fullerton in 2002 and is the current Director of the Human Performance Laboratory and the Center for Sport Performance. Prior to coming to California, he spent two years at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas as director of the Human Performance Laboratory. Before Arkansas he was in Florida for 16 years serving as Research Director for an Orthopedic surgeon’s office and teaching and coaching at the public school level. He was President of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and is a Fellow of both the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the NSCA. He also served as President of the NSCA Foundation overseeing a four million dollar endowment.
