A native of Sherbrooke, Quebec, and raised in Montreal, Brian has lived and worked in Edmonton since 1996 and is an award-winning actor and producer. Formerly Vice-President, Creative, for Alliance Atlantis in Edmonton for over thirty years, Brian has worked throughout the country and abroad. His skills include directing, writing, producing and performing in a variety of media including radio, animation, film, television and the theatre.  Trained and educated at the National Theatre School of Canada and Bishop’s University, Brian passionately believes in the development of new work and always welcomes the opportunity to lend his support and skills to new plays and playwrights. He draws inspiration from the Mexican playwright Victor Hugo Rascon Banda’s fervent message: “The theatre moves, illuminates, disquiets, disturbs, lifts the spirit, reveals, provokes and violates conventions. It is a conversation shared with society. Theatre is the first art to confront emptiness, shadows and silence to make words, movement, lights and life surge forth.”
