O'Brien holds an MFA from the University of Southern California in film production and screenwriting.

O'Brien has served as a producer, cinematographer, or story consultant for numerous short films and videos. A recent short narrative he shot for SKAZ Productions, "Missed Communication," won Regional and International CINDY (Cinema in Industry) Awards in 2014 with special citations for directing and writing.

He is also serving as a story consultant for an "immersive" opera, The Janitor, commissioned at USC with music and libretto by Liam Doyle.
