Since 1996 Brian has constantly evolved as a pro skater. When his first video part came out in Toy Machine's Welcome to Hell, he came out of nowhere and held his own along side some of the heaviest names in skateboarding at the time. By the time his part in Jump off a Building came out, he was pro. To continue his ascension to legend status, the following year he was awarded Thrasher's S.O.T.Y. He moved on to Girl Skateboards, and his skating got even better. Patrick says it best in the intro when he talks about Brian being a regular dude who happened to get the opportunity to become pro, and didn't kook it.
