Favorite Fisherman’s Wharf Attraction

Off-Hours Activities

Brian has worked at the San Remo for five years, shortly after moving to San Francisco from Stockton in California’s Central Valley. The hotel’s go-to resource for performances around town, he has studied acting since 1995, music since he was in elementary school, and he’s currently enrolled in filmmaking courses at San Francisco State University. Having performed professionally in several plays, much of Brian’s acting craft comes from studying with the multi-talented Barbara Damashek, a protégé of the legendary Stella Adler and director of the Tony award-winning musical “Quilters.”

Watch for an appearance by Brian in the award-winning independent feature film “Etienne!“ along with several other members of the San Remo staff who have supporting roles. The film premiered on opening night at the 11th Annual CineVegas Film Festival in Las Vegas and closed the United Film Festival in San Francisco on June 18. The movie includes interior scenes filmed in the hotel.

An admirer of Art Deco, antiques and architecture from the city’s past, Brian feels right at home in the hotel’s turn-of-the-century environment. When not on duty at the front desk, he enjoys school, dancing, video games, theater, and going to dinner with friends.

Favorite Thing About the Hotel

“Every room has a history and a mystery, and every room is different from the one next to it. It is a place lost in time, and I feel timeless in it. Maybe that’s why award-winning actors and other celebrities have checked in for a low-profile escape, away from daily schedules and far from the paparazzi.”
