About Me

Brian Prusko headshot

I am a software engineer at CDK Global (formerly ADP Dealer Services) and voice actor who lives in suburban Chicago.

Professional life

Since I graduated college, my professional life has evolved, but technology and art have been constants throughout.

My career started in documentary television, and the bulk of my productions featured historical and political content. While at Towers Productions, I worked on productions for National Geographic Channel, CNN, History Channel, Weather Channel, Biography, and Discovery Times Channel. After leaving Towers Productions, I worked for Kurtis Productions, the documentary production company founded by the legendary Chicago news anchor Bill Kurtis. While at Kurtis, I worked on the CNBC series "American Greed."

While working in television, I began dabbling in graphic design and that exploration quickly led me into Web development.

I’ve always enjoyed performing, and after attending an introductory workshop on voiceovers, I pursued and completed additional training.

Education and training

I earned an Associate in Arts from College of DuPage and a Bachelor of Arts in history and journalism minor from Roosevelt University. I've also completed a certificate in Web Authoring and Design at Waubonsee Community College and voiceover training with Voices For All.

I am currently enrolled at Harper College where I am pursuing an Associate in Applied Science with a concentration in network administration. I am scheduled to complete the degree in December 2019.

My idea of fun

When I’m not working, I enjoy working out and dancing. From 2015-2018, I performed for Legacy Dance Company's bachata teams. Under the direction of Rey Sanchez, Priscilla Perez, and María Torres, Legacy Dance Company is one of the premier Latin dance teams in Chicago. During my time with Legacy, I performed 14 times at congresses in Chicago, Orlando, Los Angeles, and Puerto Vallarta. I'm currently taking Zouk classes at Latin Street Music and Dancing.

At the beginning of 2018, I started volunteering at WHCM, the radio station for Harper College. As a volunteer, I record public service announcements for the station.
