Brian grew up in small rural town, called Hunlock Creek, Pennsylvania. It was like living in the middle of the forest. Picture "Blair Witch Project". When he was in high school, he was always into music, playing various instruments like the Trombone, Piano, Guitar, Bass, and Percussion. Not only was he in the Marching Band, Concert band, and a band with his friends, but he was also involved in the Chorus, and Theater. He even played baseball and basketball for a short stint. His senior year, he performed "Macbeth" not only at the Wilkes-University theater group, but also at one of the largest theaters in Northeastern Pennsylvania, The Bloomsburg Theater Ensemble (BTE).
Once Brian turned 18, he continued with the performing arts. His mother, Diane, worked for a company who partnered with the United Way of Wyoming Valley, in 1998, and together they created a haunted house, called "Gravestone Manor". This haunt was completely volunteer, and 100% of the proceeds went back to the United Way. Brian's mother introduced him to the haunt, and he's been hooked ever since. Brian remained with Gravestone Manor for 14 years. This haunted house is a theatrical haunted house. Brian got brought in as a silent actor. Each year, Brian started getting more and more involved, where he started helping with set design, construction, and then even became part of the Writing Team. The Writing Team collaborated and wrote each year's show, as a group. Then, in 2006, Brian got promoted to a Manager position, called "Lord of the Poppers" (there's even a little dance to go with the title). Brian's final year, he had a group of almost 40 wonderful ghouls and creatures under his leadership.
In April of 2012, Brian decided to move to Denver, Colorado, with a friend that invited him to work for his video production company, EFillF Productions, LLC. Brian had started as a Production Assistant, Personal Assistant, and Administrative Assistant. He then also started to Grip and eventually became Key Grip for productions. At the same time of the offer, Brian applied at the #1 haunted house in the nation, The 13th Floor. THAT NIGHT Brian got a call, asking him when he would be available to meet. Now, we can proudly say Brian worked the past three years with The 13th Floor.
In April of 2013, Brian finally decided to step in front of the camera. And got his first leading role in his debut short film, "It's Astounding That You're Here". Which was created, written by, and directed by the talented Emma Griffin-Derr.
Brian has since then, been in several productions, from shorts, commercials, web series, and student films, to video projects, and modeling shoots. Keep your eyes open for upcoming, Amazing projects that he will continue to be working on.
Brian has also been helping with A Memory Lane Events. A big-time event planner, known Nationally and Internationally. You never know where you'll see Brian next.
