After high school, Brian was accepted into the prestigious Julliard School of Music, where he pursued and received a degree in music composition. Almost immediately upon graduating however, Brianís attention turned more in the direction of his fatherís interests and he earned a degree in sociology.
Even this change in direction could not hold his focus for long. Always fascinated with space flight, Brian decided to undertake what he considered at the time to be the ultimate challenge: training as a flight control officer in Star Fleet Academy. He excelled at his studies and upon graduation was assigned to the USS Agincourt where he served for three years.
During his tour of duty aboard the Agincourt, Brian once again felt drawn to something else. Capitalizing on his Betazoid empathic abilities and his natural disposition as a compassionate listener, Brian requested a leave to pursue a doctorate in psychology at the University of Betazed.
His first assignment as a counselor was to the USS Galaxy in 2377. By early 2378, Brian had proven himself a capable counselor and was granted a promotion to Full Lieutenant while serving on board the USS Galaxy.
However he does not like to focus for extended periods of time in one direction or on a single task. It frequently requires an extra amount of effort for him to see a long-term project through to completion, but when he is able to muster the necessary self-control and stamina his work is usually of very high quality.
Gifted with excellent listening skills and an almost naÔve sincerity, Brian makes friends easily and enjoys interacting with people. Nonetheless, only a select few are ever privileged to see the pain, self-doubt, and anger that roil beneath his sparkling faÁade.
His favorite color is electric blue, his favorite season is winter and he loves snow and cold climates.
He has a large, long-haired black-and-white cat named Choo-choo.
Brian is homosexual and completely ok with that; although naturally attracted to and comfortable with men, he has many female friends and co-workers for whom he has great fondness and respect.
Few things bring his internal anger to the surface, but Brian despises insincerity, injustice, arrogance and cynicism. He suffers when he feels rejected or excluded.
