Originally from the Geelong Falcons, Brown was drafted by St Kilda Football Club at the 1994 AFL Draft and made his senior AFL debut in 1995. Playing as a rover, Brown was a hard-running player, even if he was not as flashy as some of the other of the young brigade around the mid-90s at St Kilda, such as Austinn Jones and Joel Smith.
Brown played in 21 of 22 matches in the 1997 AFL season home and away rounds in which St Kilda Football Club qualified in first position for the finals, winning the club’s second Minor Premiership and first McClelland Trophy.
At the end of the 2000 AFL season, Brown left St Kilda after 108 games and 62 goals, moving to SANFL club Port Adelaide Magpies, where he became captain, and in 2001 was the joint winner of the Magarey Medal for the SANFL best and fairest player. Brown quit Port Adelaide at the end of 2005 to return to Victoria for family reasons and signed on to play with Victorian Amateur Football Association (VAFA) club Old Haileybury.
He also taught at Sandringham East primary school, Haileybury College and is currently teaching at Geelong primary.
