headshot02Bio:
Brian does a little bit of everything in the theatre & movie world. In addition to acting & improv, Brian is a writer, director, producer, cinematographer, & video editor with his production company, Cold Silver Films.

An Atlanta native, Brian was bitten by the acting bug while in high school. It wasn’t long before he was also doing improv and writing plays. After high school, he took time away from college to study film and learn about directing, cinematography, & video editing.

After a while, Brian decided it was time to get that degree, and in 2009 he graduated magna cum laude from Valdosta State University with a BFA in Theatre. At VSU, Brian served as leader of the “To Be Named Later…” improv troupe and Artistic Director of the Immediate Theatre Project. While there, Brian worked on a number of student films & took several writing courses. He also started his own production company, Cold Silver Films.

Brian’s first professional theatre job was at Snow Camp Outdoor Theatre in North Carolina, where his roles included the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood. While at Snow Camp, he wrote the book for the season’s musical, Cane Creek Calamities. He next worked at Seaside Repertory Theatre in Florida, where he did childrens theatre and was a member of The Flaws Improv & Comedy Troupe.headshot03

Brian returned to Atlanta, where he has worked with The Atlanta Opera (Aida), Expressions Theatre (Assistant Director & the title character in The Legend of Sir Cleges and His Gifts), and Rosewater Theatre (Justin Waverly in Christmas Belles.) He also performed improv as a member of The OTC Comedy Troupe.

Lately, Brian has been focusing his energies on writing and directing. He has produced a number of digital shorts with Cold Silver Films, and is in post-production on two short films and his first feature film, Uncommon Law, which he shot during the summer of 2011.

Following that Brian spent three years in Chicago, where his play, Once Upon a Rom Com: The Bill Pullman Story, had a two month run at Gorilla Tango Theatre, received rave reviews, and captured the attention of Mr. Pullman himself! Brian is a graduate of the iO Training Program, where he met the other members of The High Ceilings, who he performed with for a year, including performances at the Del Close Marathon in New York, Jangleheart Circus, and the Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival. While there, he performed improv & sketch comedy regularly around the city with his groups, Michinoku Driver and Trashcan Dan. Michinoku Driver has performed at the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival, the Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival, and had a month long run of their sketch show, “Off the Record,” at the Public House Theatre.

Brian is now living in Atlanta again where he is completing post-production on Uncommon Law, working on his debut novel, and attending grad school to get his Master’s in Education.
