Brian is a drummer, educator and clinician as well as a producer, arranger and co-writer with the acclaimed indie modern rock outfit Honor By August and the EMB3R Collective production group.  Throughout his 15-year professional career, Brian has toured internationally and across the US. He’s shared the stage in direct support of artists like Bon Jovi, Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, Third Eye Blind, Peter Frampton, Bruce Hornsby and Jonny Lang, amongst distinguished others, and worked with producers and mixers like Jack Joseph Puig (John Mayer, Jellyfish), Mark Needham (Imagine Dragons, P!nk) Jim Ebert (Butch Walker) and Jeff Juliano (Dan + Shay, PVRIS)


In Honor By August, Brian has co-written and performed on recordings broadcast to millions on television networks such as ABC, ESPN, MTV & E!. The band boasted two Top 100 Hot AC charting singles with "Last Chance" and "Already Yours” as an independent artist.  Heavy rotation on Sirius/XM’s The Pulse, as well as major terrestrial radio stations like Washington DC's 94.7 Fresh FM, made the band one of the highest charting independent artists of 2014 along side bands like Mumford and Sons and The Lumineers.


HBA is currently finishing post-production on their 7th studio album, recorded and produced entirely by the band, and is slated for a late 2018/early 2019 release.


Brian also performs with other artists such as Tony Lucca (The Voice), Pat McGee Band (Warner/Giant), Todd Wright (Celene Dion), Kill The Alarm, along with many others.


As an educator and clinician for over a decade, Brian maintains an active roster of students in his private percussion studio based in the Washington DC Metro area.
