Educated in engineering and business, Brian became interested in rock art while attending a site stewardship class in 2003.

In 2006, Brian traveled to Australia with David Lee and Charlotte Anderson to assist with recording rock art sites in the Northern Territory. Since returning from that trip, he has worked with David Lee to produce a series of site records for the rock art of Wardaman country. Brian is interested in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and has completed courses toward a GIS Certificate at California State University, Northridge.
