Brian attended the Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School, and afterwards enrolled at The Westminster Schools just a year prior to his future co-star Ed Helms matriculated from there. The school is located in Atlanta, Georgia, and has its roots traced back to 1978. In 2008, the school was noted for having the largest endowment of any non-boarding school in the US. While a student, Brian developed a passion towards competitive speech events, and during his senior year reached the national finals.
After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at Southern Methodist University. SMU was founded in 1911 by the church which would become the United Methodist Church. Later on, the school became non-sectarian in its teachings and now has over 11,000 students enrolled annually. They have eight schools which offer undergraduate, graduate, and research degrees.
Following the completion of his education, he moved towards a career in theatre, gaining a lot of attention for work in Minneapolis as a part of the Hidden Theatre.

Baumgartner has had numerous notable projects throughout his career, as he gained roles on television. He worked on “Everwood”, “Jake in Progress”, and “Arrested Development”, the latter a sitcom which originally aired on Fox, and followed the story of a formerly wealthy dysfunctional family.

The show follows the lives of office employees in a fictional branch of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, and employs a documentary style, having a single-camera setup and interviews similar to that of a documentary. The show proved highly successful, gaining widespread acclaim through its run.
