Brian was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama, where he started dancing at the age of 14. After receiving his BFA in Contemporary Dance, Brian moved to Chicago to further his training with Hubbard Street's Professional Program (HSPro) under the direction of Alexandra Wells. In the program, he has performed and workshopped work by Ryan Mason, William Forsythe, Rena Butler, Robyn Minekos Williams, and Peter Chu; all of whom were able to provide transformative information for Brian's developing choreographic and teaching voices. Providing a space for dancers to discover movement and take ownership of it has been a staple in Brian's teaching. This, in addition to his Cecchetti training, positively impacts students in their technical and artistic growth as dancers.
