Meet The Team

Brendan Miggins, Senior Member

Brendan Miggins decided he wanted to become an architect at age 8. This lead him to the University of Notre Dame where he studied art, architecture and design in Rome. Here his eyes were opened to the world at large, to Renaissance ideals and examples of versatile, creative individuals like Leonardo DaVinci who were unbounded by singular labels like artist, architect, inventor.
Brendan practiced architecture, art, and all manner of creative impulse while living in Texas and New Mexico—then returned to his birthplace of Connecticut. After caring for his parents through the end of their lives, Brendan has found a new mission: People fully empowered in their creativity, creating a world alive with Love and Joy, Grace and Beauty. His new focus in NFTs, with its promise of artist empowerment, advances the expression of that mission.

James White, Senior Member


I was born and raised in North Carolina in a county that was consistently in the bottom half of the 100 counties, more specifically in the bottom 25% for Healthcare, education, jobs and income. Being a book smart student was not appealing to those around me and before high school, was influenced into street life. The streets shaped a portion of teenage and young adult years that led to being booked into the system. While serving the required time, a love developed for trading and finance. Developing this skill during waking hours sparked a passion within and continues to this day. Precision Investment Partners, LLC (PIPsLLC) was developed out of this passion. PIPs LLC is an educational platform where like-minded individuals come together to learn all things finance. Being an educator and leader on this platform provides an avenue to teach those in younger generations how mistakes can affect your life and show the importance of financial literacy.
