Brian also graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Occupational Therapy and attended Graduate Degree classes for Master of Science in Health Care Administration at Central Michigan University. He also served as an active duty military for the United States Air Force. Part of his Air Force Career was the opportunity to tour worldwide as a performer under the auspices of the Air Force’s Premiere Entertainment, "Tops in Blue." After honorably separating from the military , he worked as an Occupational Therapist in the Washington DC area while also working as an actor/performer for various theaters, entertainment companies, films and televisions.
Brian moved to New York City in 2007 to further pursue his acting career. He eventually became a member of both the Actor’s Equity Association (AEA) and Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA). In February of 2015, he took a break from being in the entertainment world and accepted the offer to become the Director of Rehabilitation for a Rehab and Nursing facility in Brooklyn, NY. Brian continued working as a Rehab Director up until January of 2018. In Feb of 2018, his company created a position for him as a Traveling Supervisor /Clinical Specialist. Throughout his healthcare career, he remained passionate in incorporating creative strategies, humanizing approach to management, collaboration and continues to be an advocate on the optimal therapeutic benefits of fusing arts and healthcare.
On February 14, 2020, he took a major career leap of faith by leaving his job in healthcare to devote his time in producing socially and culturally relevant films. As a Film Producer, he recently produced a short film entitled P.S. Love Robby . Brian is also currently working on completing a feature documentary entitled FollowLeadLOVE under an Independent Multi-Media Production company which he co-founded, Transend’Daens . He is also the Post-Production Producer for both the Award Winning feature documentary film Amy’s Victory Dance and the short film Dark Matter under SpinKick Pictures.
Most recently, he decided to create his own company, Humanize It by Brian Rubiano, LLC with a mission of further expanding his purpose so he can help others expand theirs. His company believes in providing a humanizing approach to film production, brand strategy consultation & photoshoot production. Brian also wants to maximize these platforms by incorporating his years of experience, skills & knowledge on various industries so he can help bring about the true essence of humanity and be one of the vessels to the voiceless, marginalized & underrepresented .
