Since he was a child Brian loved trucks and motorcycles, and was very skilled in mechanics.

Brian first worked as a Heavy Equipment Operator, and in 1998 he began his career as a truck driver. From 1999-2007, Brian was the successful business owner of Linear Transit. He worked for several trucking companies throughout his 23 year career, most recently at Storage Solutions in Schenectady. He was known as a loyal and reliable employee, and an excellent driver.
Throughout his life, Brian was a skilled soccer player, and also enthusiastically coached and supported his childrens' soccer endeavors. Brian also loved water, and went surfing any chance he could.
