b.1976 Los Angeles, California
For nearly 20 years, Brian has been professionally serving the arts, non-profits, museums, food+beverage, publishing, and ad agencies with award-winning design work. From 2009 to 2016, he conducted a seven-year experiment called PÄS with his wife Kristy, and has been a local arts advocate since 2003. In 2016, he moved the primate design studio into an old hobby shop in Fullerton, California where he shares space with two 80-something year-old retired aerospace engineers and thousands of model kits from the 1990s. His heroes are his two teenage sons because they are the future.
