Brian began working in Hollywood as an assistant and orchestrator on more than 150 episodes of Family Guy and American Dad in the storied scoring stages of Fox, Sony, Paramount, and Warner Bros. During which time he developed a deep affinity for what might be considered the musical language of Hollywood’s golden era. This led to a fruitful relationship with film makers David Dodson and Marius Balchunas, spanning 10 feature films since 2013, including the Russian Comedy of the Year in 2013 (8 First Dates), and the most successful film in the history of Ukrainian cinema (Me You He She).
Recently, he moved into a new studio space in Burbank housed within the post facility Aura Sound and Color, added an arsenal of vintage and modern synthesizers (which have been heavily used on a several film trailer and sound design projects), and wrote the title music for a new unscripted show on USA.
In September of 2018, Brian was commissioned by the Orpheus Male Chorus of Phoenix to write a work in commemoration of their 90th anniversary, which will be premiered in April/May of 2019.
He holds cats... as well as degrees in music composition from Pepperdine University (B.A.), and Arizona State University (M.M.)
“The modern production climate is a dynamic one, which requires that composers fill many roles, juggling multiple hats and see to it that they all land, fitting perfectly upon their respective heads like bespoke attire. We often record what we write, mix what we produce, and perform what we have dreamt. Whatever the demands, we simply strive to seize the best idea in the room, and deliver it to the project. The invitation to collaborate in the design and execution of a director's vision is an honor and journey of transformation that can lead us to our best selves.”
