The name "Brian" is derived from an Old Celtic word meaning "connection." And that's my passion: connecting people to themselves, each other, and the world around them through captivating works of story, comedy, music, and honesty. Also, Brian doesn't actually mean that, I made that up. Sorry.
After three years writing cards at Hallmark, I committed to performing and creating arts and entertainment full-time. Since then, I've performed at Kansas City Repertory Theatre, Theater Wit, KC Actors Theatre, The Living Room, The Chicago Musical Theatre Festival and others. I was recently hired for a co-star role on Chicago PD.
My work as a writer has been produced often by The Living Room, and I have a number of scripts in the works. In 2015, I co-founded Friend Dog Studios, an online content brand that amassed millions of views and garnered fans around the world. FDS has two musicals and a one-act play in development.
