Brian + Jeanee Linden
Together Jeanee and Brian Linden have created a space like none other to beautifully display elegant pieces that invite you to bring them into your own home. The two are also founding partners of the Linden Centre and offer travel excursions to China.
Brian is a Chicago native who began working in China as a CBS cameraman in 1985. During those two years, he was involved in interviews with Chinese leaders and also found time to star in a feature-length movie. He pursued graduate work at University of Illinois and Stanford and then worked on education projects and investment for international schools and education firms for 15 years before refocusing his talent and leadership skills on a project of his own.
Jeanee’s love affair with China began with her involvement with the Cameron House community in San Francisco’s Chinatown. She had an early passion for outdoor and community leadership with Cameron House and stood out in her large Cantonese-American family as the only cousin of 35 to invest time in understanding her family’s heritage and language. Jeanee pursued graduate studies at UC San Francisco and a career in nursing before permanently venturing back to China in 2007.
