BRIAN BOSE, born and raised in Los Angeles, is a Nigerian, Belizean, Guatemalan, Jamaican, and Indian American. As an actor-singer-dancer, performing artist, choreographer/director, and international teaching artist, he revels as a multidimensional storyteller. He wholeheartedly believes that he was put on this earth to move, be moved, and to move others. Deep down, he maneuvers through the world as a wisdom-collector and truth-seeker. More inquisitive than Curious George, he possesses an utter fascination with human beings, how we tick, and why. http://brianbose.com/
