Brian joined the AAU library in 2014. He received a BFA in Visual Arts from the University of Minnesota and an MA in Art and Media History from UC San Diego. After an inspiring research trip to the New Zealand Film Archives, he decided to pursue librarianship. His library interests 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.
