Who is "actual nerd" Brian P from the latest Portlandia episode?

I feel like I recognize him from a party or a gaming group or something like that. Does anyone know if he's an actual (non-actor) Portland resident? Either way, that sketch was absolutely dead on in nailing the stupid trend that's been going on for a few years now of so many people proudly declaring themselves nerds, but only in ways that make them socially acceptable and cool to those who don't know them (local music nerd, indie movie nerd, expensive whiskey nerd, world traveling nerd, etc.).
