Brian's had a love for directing since high school, producing comedy sketches & Shakespeare scenes in Ohio & New York before directing Stephen Belber's Tape, co-creating Stephanie Fieger's one-woman show, Flying Lesson, and directing a powerful new play, co-created with Kit Wannen (Producers) and Angelique Cabral (Life in Pieces, Enlisted), about growing up in George W. Bush's America -- Jesse Garon Lives.

In 2013, Brian directed indie comedy feature The Weekend, created with a wonderful ensemble including Carson Elrod, Heather Lind, Bhavesh Patel, Julie Sharbutt & Amber Gray. Produced by Sunnyside Films & distributed through FilmBuff, The Weekend soon featured on PBS' Saturday at the Movies.

Currently preoccupied with acting, screenwriting & family, Brian can't wait to get back to (perhaps) his greatest joy -- collaborating to bring authentic, big-hearted stories to friends, family and communities around the world.
