He started when he was just 4 years old, and began dancing traditional as he got older. Brian wanted to try chicken dancing. At that time there was no junior category so he had to dance with the men.

He was also called Beufart by his friends and cousins, and called beebee by his sisters as he was the only brother they had and only son his parents had.
