Brian loves being a working dad- sharing time between the theatre and parenting Margot and Elliette alongside the love of his life, Nikki. When not in Portland, you can find him on any stream, mountain, or forest trail. He also serves on the Board or Outside In, helping homeless youth and other marginalized people move towards improved health and self-sufficiency.
