After playing locally in various bands, he moved out west at age 21 to the thriving Portland, Oregon music scene where Brian spent 10 years. While enjoying the eclectic and rich musical landscapes in P-Town, he studied jazz guitar at Portland State University under the legendary Jerry Hahn who is best known for his time with Gary Burton, John Handy, and recording with Paul Simon on his first solo album. Brian also had the
tremendous pleasure of studying under jazz great Darrell Grant at PSU.
