So far, Brian considers some of his favorite roles to play so far as being that of a CIA agent in the short film Perception and an LAPD officer in D-Dot Ft Xzibit music video Revolution. He also loved the role he played in a national Verizon Wireless commercial.

His training in acting is also quite impressive. This comprises of his early speech and drama classes at Lacken National Primary School, after this, he attended Acting Corps School in North Hollywood and it was here, that he learned the Meisner & Chekhov techniques and also performed plays. He further went to Theatre of Arts Acting School (gaining a two year associate degree)and was also in the play ‘One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest’.

Inspiration wise, Brian is forever grateful to his speech and drama teacher Ms Marie Coll who praised his talents and encouraged him to pursue an acting career.
