After serving two tours of duty in the U.S. Army (1980-1986), Brian lived off and on in Germany from 1987 until 2000. There Brian took his musical talent on the road performing with a variety of professional and semi-professional acts.
While not the highlight of his time in Germany, Brian's most rewarding experience during this period was working alongside Producers Thomas Schmitt-Zijnen, Thomas Paul Korge, and David Bell at the immortal Dolphin Studios in Mörfelden, Germany.
Under the tutelage of the "2 Tommy's", Brian perfected his skills as an engineer and producer while collaborating with such Artists as Michael Sadler (Saga), Canned Heat, and The Frankfurt Rock Orchestra.
