Vert Is Dead takes a brief and incomplete look at Washington D.C. over the next seven business days.
Brian is from Mansfield, Pennsylvania, lived in Ithaca, New York, and moved to the Washington D.C. area in 1985. His mom gave him a skateboard for Christmas that year and he has been rolling ever since. His first sponsor was Intensity Skates, which led to getting hooked up by H-Street. Brian had some tricks in Hokus Pokus. He was doing ollies and boardslides on some giant benches in DC. This helped to put the East Coast on the radar of the West Coast focused skateboard industry. Over the years he has ridden for several different companies, including One More Skateboards, People, and Circle A. Brian is also interested in painting and playing music. He went to school with Chris Hall and grew up skating with Sean Sheffey.
