Brian Wecht Bio (Age)
The multi-talented artist was born on April 22, 1975, in Pompton Plains, New Jersey. Not many revelations have been made about his childhood; e.g. what school he went to, what he was like as a child, and even who his parents are. But considering that Brian was a renowned physicist before he ventured into the entertainment industry, we can assume that he had a normal childhood and devoted much of his young adult life to his studies.
In particular, he studied and earned his doctorate in particle physics at the University of California at San Diego. Brian had focused his research on supersymmetry, quantum field theory, and string theory. Before retiring from academia in 2015, he worked as a researcher at Harvard University, Queen Mary University of London, and several other renowned universities.
