Brian was born and raised just outside San Francisco, and grew up in the Bay Area theatre world. He spent many summers teaching and helping run a children’s theatre camp in Point Richmond, CA. After high school, he moved to New York City to attend Marymount Manhattan College. He graduated from Marymount with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre Performance and Musical Theatre. While in college, Brian started performing throughout NYC with Comedy Sportz Improv and working in commercials. That work led to a short film that took him to Sundance, and ultimately Brian made the move to Los Angeles to pursue television and film.
Since the move to Los Angeles, Brian has had recurring roles on CW’s JANE THE VIRGIN and the CBS soap opera THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. Other credits include TRANSPARENT, PRETTY LITTLE LIARS, THE MIDDLE, CHANCE and ANGER MANAGEMENT. He can most recently be seen guest starring opposite Susan Sarandon on FX’s FEUD: BETTE AND JOAN.

Brian came to Stan Kirsch Studios in 2015. After quickly realizing SKS was a unique collaborative community of working actors teaching practical technique, he made it his home. Aside from studying with Stan himself, he also enjoys coaching fellow students and actors to success.

"There is no lack of talent in this industry. And the best way to set yourself apart?
By being YOU."
- Colleen Foy
The answer to every acting question you will ever have is specificity
"Unplugging, waiting for 10 seconds, and plugging back in works on humans, too"
Your number will be called. Probably not WHEN you want it to be called, but it WILL be called. Just keep going!
