Brian began his work as a professional voice over actor at age 15 when he was invited to audition for a Pepsi radio commercial. He didn't get that job, but Brian fell in love with everything about the voice over process. Fast forward 30 years, and Brian has an on-going relationship with Pepsi (PBVLLC) for radio work.
In between that first opportunity and today, Brian has had the privilege of lending his voice via radio, TV, message on hold, IVR, live broadcast, and live events to brands including: The National Hockey League (NHL), John Deere, Special Olympics International, Blackberry, M&M Mars, McDonalds, AmerLink Log Homes, Peterbilt Trucks, PNC Bank, the American Red Cross, American Heart Association, Duke Children's Hospital and many others.
Brian loves the warmth of live events hosting and emceeing dozens of business and awards events over the last 20 years. The excitement of live sports is also part of Brian's versality. He was "the voice" of PNC Arena and home announcer of the NHL Carolina Hurricanes from 2005 until 2015. In that role, he enjoyed many great highlights including the 2006 Stanley Cup Final. In 2010, Brian was selected by the NHL to travel to Helsinki to call the Compuware Premier Games; in 2011 announced the NHL All-Star Game & Skills Challenge. In 2015, USA Rugby asked Brian to call the NACRA Sevens qualifying tournament for the 2016 Olympics. He has since worked with World Rugby at the women's 2016 World Rugby Sevens Championships.
