a native of Pittsburgh, PA., Brian took an indirect route to becoming an actor. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, his career path began in the financial services industry and then diverged to professional volleyball in Europe. It was during this time that he also took the nascent steps to becoming an actor. Brian retired from volleyball in 2004, and his ambition to become an actor took center stage. After returning from Europe, Brian moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting full time and spent 11 years working in Hollywood, adding numerous film and television credits to his name. His acting career then shifted to the east coast when he moved back to Pittsburgh in 2015. Being away from Hollywood hasn't hampered Brian as he continues to add to his film, television, and theater credits.
