As his family was about to depart on a sailing trip from Vancouver's Vanier Park, an 8 year old Adrian wandered away from them and found himself in Bard on the Beach's green room tent during a performance of Hamlet. "SWEAR" the Ghost (played by Douglas Campbell) boomed with God-like power from the nearby main stage... Adrian's eyes were wide with wonder... The sights and sounds he took in that night began a life long passion, and the stage remains his home away from home. His diverse resume of productions includes leads in George F. Walker's Tough (Cucumber Satellite) and Neil Simon's Biloxi Blues (Deep Cove Theatre), as well as live cabaret shows with The True Heroines, to name a few.
Adrian trained for nearly a decade at Lyric School of Acting, and later Railtown Actors Studio under mentors Babz Chula, Kate Twa, John Cassini, Dr. Iris Macgregor-Bannerman, and others. In 2010, he co-founded what would become Blind Pig Theatre, alongside several close friends and peers who he had studied with for many years. Since then, the company has produced seven shows, 3 of which featured Adrian on stage: Christopher Durang's Beyond Therapy (2010), Eric Bogosian's SubUrbia (2012), and Victor Gialanella's Frankenstein (2013).
