When he is not grilling, searing, or smoking meat on his Big Green Egg, Brian can probably be found in his urban vegetable garden or on stage performing as a professional percussionist and drummer. He leads the acclaimed dual-ensemble Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica, which the Boston Globe calls "engagingly unique." Brian has performed at prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Montreal Jazz Festival, and maybe your local tiki bar. If you're at a conference with Brian, just look for only guy probably wearing orange shoes or a stylish orange leather messenger bag.
