Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
***Full disclosure! I live in Southeast Texas (although originally
from Chicago) and I will be in Central City from mid-June through
the beginning of August. Looking forward to meeting lots of new
Looking for my last first date!
I'm Brian. I am an actor, teacher and fight choreographer. Yep, I
teach actors to swordfight. I have a MFA in acting and I am a
full-time university professor.

I am also a pretty huge musical theatre geek (yep, and I'm
I am a wanna-be foodie and love to cook. And yes, I did shamelessly
include some food porn in my photo section. Date me and I promise
you will eat well!
I am looking for someone who is just as much of a nerd as I
I have an unusual talent for being universally loved by cats, dogs
My kindness is sometimes mistaken for weakness. This is
unfortunate. I have had to go through many things in my life, both
positive and negative, all of which have made me a stronger person.
I can be tenacious in getting what I want, if I want it badly
I love to travel when time and money allow. Been to London a few
times as well as Vegas (always a good getaway destination) and I am
getting tired of going by myself. Any takers?
I sometimes tend toward the shy side, especially when I am around
new people, but once I get to know you, I am quite the chatty one.
When interviewed on "Inside the Actor's Studio", Mike Myers
referred to himself as a "site-specific extrovert." This sums me up
perfectly. I, like Michael Scott, appreciate a good "that's what
she said" joke and am a huge fan of The Office, 30 Rock and The
Amazing Race, not mention just about any show on The Food
I consider myself a loyal friend. I will literally give you the
shirt off my back if you need it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living the dream, i.e. a full time university teaching position! I
also freelance as a fight director and stage combat teacher.
Currently available for all your theatrical violence needs!
I have also recently started studying Alexander Technique and
Fitzmaurice Voicework. I'd be happy to tell you about either!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a pretty good cook, if I do say so myself! Recently, I have
started cooking my own Indian food and next on the list is Thai. I
like to think I am also a good teacher. My father was a teacher and
I seem to have inherited that gene. In my humble opinion, I don't
think there is any more noble profession! And, not to toot my own
horn, have been told I am a pretty good kisser!
