A lover of all dance, he has practiced dance styles ranging from breakin' and hip hop to swing, salsa, and Filipino folk dance. But once he discovered popping and funk, there would be no turning back. With his unique blend of popping that takes influences from Bay Area strutting, Electric Boogaloo, robotics, and hip hop, he has go on to be a finalist/winner of popping battles in New York, Boston, DC, and the Netherlands. In 2007, he joined New York popping crew The Inhumanoids. Together they have helped maintain the NYC popping scene as hosts of Popshop open practice sessions, teachers of Popping Fundamentals at PMT Dance Studio, and organizers of the Urban Renewal dance competition. Brian also joined the PMT Dance Company in 2014, performing in the company's 2014 show "Struck."
