Brian is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist whose work has been exhibited worldwide at film festivals, screening series, clubs, art galleries and on TV. Riding the analog-to-digital wave for twenty-five years, he works in narrative, documentary and experimental filmmaking, performs and produces electronic music, indulges in photography and graphic design, and enjoys writing “fast-food” fiction. Having spent much of his career working in the commercial film and media industry, over the past several years his reputation has grown as a prolific outsider artist due to bold and diverse stylistic explorations with such films as “Le Nu,”*** “Audition For Death,” “Auraprint,” “Wiggah,”*** “Milquetoast,” and “Tea Party.” No matter what artistic direction, he strives to create a timeless, unforgettable experience through his work, this aim cemented with the documentary feature “Headspace: The Sound of Life,” for which he was the writer, cinematographer and editor—the film called “visionary” by The New York Times. He currently teaches Film Production at DePaul University School of Cinematic Arts in Chicago.
