Hi, I'm Brian!
I have a confession to make. I have always wanted to be a Power Ranger. Ever since I was a little kid, that was the goal. The stick in my backyard was the power sword used to take down Lord Zedd. I was a power ranger fanatic, and I collected every piece of memorabilia I could find. As soon as I learned they weren't real, I figured I should become the next best thing: an actor.
Growing up in a huge sports family in Hershey, PA, saying I wanted to be an actor was a bit of a shock. My Dad analyzes risk for a living, so me being an actor is proof that God has a sense of humor. Nevertheless, I have a wonderful support system that I couldn’t be more grateful for.
I started acting accidentally. By the time I was 12, my dad had an idea that I wanted to start acting. He saw that local auditions for Neil Simon's Lost in Yonkers were misprinted onto the Sports page of the newspaper. I auditioned, got the part, and the rest is history.
This is what sparked my passion for storytelling. Telling someone else’s story made me feel more comfortable to start telling my own. Growing up, I didn’t have queer role models to look up to, which is why I felt drawn to living someone else’s life for a few hours. It was my escape from my own reality, but little did I know, it helped so many people confront theirs.
I am a recent graduate of Point Park University’s Conservatory of Performing Arts in Pittsburgh, PA, where I received my BFA in Acting. During my time there, I was lucky enough to be cast in 42nd Street, Much Ado About Nothing, Pippin, and the Grand Opening Gala for the New Pittsburgh Playhouse, featuring Tony Yazbeck, Rob Ashford, and Shirley Jones. I also performed in numerous student films, straight plays, and play festivals. In between school years, I did various summer stock theatre contracts, most notably performing in Mamma Mia! At the Fulton Theatre. I took my collegiate experience as an opportunity to fully hone my craft and best prepare myself for the career I am meant to have.
After graduating in 2020… Well, we all know how that went. I took a step back to continue learning, taking classes with Matthew Corozine Studio and Mike Ruckles Voice Studio. I shot my first feature film this Summer that is set to release in 2023. Most recently, I co-starred on Law & Order and Peacock's Pokerface, opposite Natasha Lyonne!
