Portrait by Aran Quinn

Brian has been fortunate enough to have worked on a wide swath of projects with some of the best of the besties in the advertising industry over the past 10 plus years, both large and small in scope. These projects include Apple iPod commercials, music videos with The Black Eyed Peas, a Target commercial featuring the late great Prince, explainer videos for Nextdoor and Google, public service shorts for People for Bikes and The California Endowment, and a coloring book for Doodl Club. 

In 2007, Brian was honored to be on the Motionographer “Cream of the Crop” list; in 2008, he was awarded an ADC Young Gun as one of the top 50 artists under the age of 30. In 2009, he spoke at The Apple Store in Santa Monica for the ADC. Brian was a main event speaker for AIGA with a talk entitled “The Evolution of a Creative and His Hairline,” as well as exhibiting in the A+D Museum in Los Angeles for the “Come In: A Spatial Intervention” show in 2010. While a staff director at The Mill in NYC, he traveled to Mexico City to speak at OFFF, as well as directing a comedic campaign for Progressive Insurance featuring the voice of Chris Parnell in 2013.

Brian approaches every brief with an open mind and imagination while hoping to bring humor, charm, wit, and his own unique style and voice to a project. When he’s not chin deep in solving client problems he’s usually talking to other artists for his popular podcast Motion Sickness or cracking dad jokes for his two biggest fans, his sons River and Sage.
