(He/Him) A Texas transplant, Bryan unwittingly showed up in NYC as a literal lyric from
Annie!: “3 bucks, 2 bags, 1 [ginger].” A few years of hustling later, he went to UConn for his MFA in Acting. Keep up with Bryan's next project, an original radio drama, Rogue Waves, that will hopefully strike too close to home. He also is narrating an adaptation of Little Women.
Bryan is committed to creating a more inclusive theatre and inspiring positive, anti-racist change within the communities it serves. He’s interested in exploring inequalities and social justice issues in overt and subtle ways.
Film credits include Exit (winner of the Mountain Film Festival), First Day on the Job, and others. He was looking forward to taking on CT Repertory Theatre’s production of Little Shop of Horrors (Seymour) and Great River Shakespeare Festival’s The Tempest (Ferdinand), but alas, Covid. He now holds an MFA in Acting (UConn), BFA in Dramatic Media (TLU) and BA in Communications (TLU).
As a Dramatic Media and Communications double degree holder from Texas Lutheran University, Bryan is trained in a variety of skills ranging from cultural studies, film studies, enthnographical research, film editing, classical and contemporary acting, script writing, directing, and more.
He particularly enjoys sharing the gift of art with kids of all ages working as a Teaching Artist in Texas Tales to help low-income schools with literacy through acting and working for the 60th anniversary of Harand Camp outside of Chicago.
Bryan has completed his degrees after a Capstone original work named 'Someone Like You' that included dancing, vocals, spoken word, writing, directing, arranging, and a number of other skills. While living in New York City, Bryan toured the Midwest with the new musical, The Wright Brothers, and a number of other small film and theatrical productions.
Bryan is a white male. This is important to point out as this lens in particular means he is writing from a place of privileged white male perspective. He is committed to truthful and dynamic ranges to all people regardless of race, sex, orientation, religion, ideology, and background.
