Brian first came across furry artwork in 2006 while browsing Deviant Art looking for Sonic the Hedgehog fan art. He had already been a Sonic the Hedgehog fan since 1995, and an avid reader of the Archie published Sonic the Hedgehog comic book since 2001. Brian didn't take any real interest in the furry community until July 2013 when he discovered the monthly West Michigan Furry Bowl Meet held at Spectrum Lanes in Wyoming, Michigan, which was only a few miles from where he lived at the time.
Brian's fursona,  Barkley, was created on July 29th, 2013, only 2 days after attending his first furry bowl meet.
Barkley has attended:
- Midwest Fur Fest 2013, 2014, 2015
- Great Lakes Fur Con 2014, 2015, 2016
- Motor City Furry Con 2014, 2015, 2016
- Anthrocon 2016
