Originally from Tridell, Utah, Brian joined Ririe-Woodbury for their 55th season. A late starter in dance, Brian initially attended Southern Utah University as a Musical Theater Major, where he was first exposed to the world of concert dance. He eventually transferred to the University of Utah where he graduated in 2016 with a BFA in Ballet (Most Outstanding Senior) and a minor in Modern Dance. He has been lucky enough to dance with BodyVox, Skinner/Kirk, Now-ID, Municipal Ballet Company, and Salt 2.

As a theatrical artist, he has had the pleasure of working with companies such as; Tuacahn, Pioneer Theater Company, Utah Shakespeare, Utah Festival Opera. Personal motto: "Always be battement ready". He is so thankful for the constant support and love from his friends and family.
