Brian joined the AAU library in 2014. He received a BA in Art History and a BFA in Visual Arts from the University of Minnesota and an MA in Art History, Theory and Criticism from UC San Diego. After an inspiring research trip to the New Zealand Film Archives, he decided to pursue librarianship. He is currently attending the MLIS program at San Jose State University. His library interest include digital archiving, visual resources, arts libraries, artists' books, and digital preservation.
Outside of the library, Brian spends his time volunteering at underground film and video spaces, going to art openings, backpacking, and taking road trips.
