Brown Forbes was born in Berlin, to a Costa Rican father and a German mother, and spent his first six years in Limón. He made his professional debut for FC Carl Zeiss Jena during the 2010–11 3. Fußball-Liga season in a 1–1 home draw with VfB Stuttgart II.
Initially, Brown Forbes was willing to play internationally for Costa Rica, but he later was called to the youth teams of Germany, starting to prioritize his country of birth above his origins. However, because Germany has not called him for its national teams since 2011, Brown Forbes began to show signs of interest in playing international matches with Costa Rica. As of 12 September 2013, he highlighted the Costa Rican qualification for the 2014 FIFA World Cup on his Twitter account. In November 2013, Brown Forbes confirmed to the Costa Rican press that he wants to play for Los Ticos.
