Brian joined KCRW's Press Play in 2019 after three years at NPR's On Point, housed at WBUR in Boston. Before that, he spent a decade at KGOU in Oklahoma City as the operations director, digital news editor, Morning Edition host, reporter, and producer - sometimes all in the same day. He grew up in the Dallas area (with a brief stint in Singapore) and earned degrees in journalism and history from the University of Oklahoma.

In his free time, Brian enjoys distance running and hanging with his cute Boston Terrier, Bucky.
