College and semi-professional

Brown played college soccer for the Virginia Cavaliers from 2010 to 2014. In 2013, he quit the team due to a lack of playing time after being beaten out for the starting role. However, he returned to the team and was named starter in 2014. In total, Brown made 30 appearances for the Cavaliers. In 2014, he led the team to the NCAA Division 1 national championship. He was named the tournament's most valuable defensive player after recording shutouts against the University of Maryland-Baltimore County in the semifinal and UCLA in the championship game. In 2011 and 2014, Brown also played for the Northern Virginia Royals of the semi-professional Premier Development League. He made seven appearances and five appearances for the club in 2011 and 2014, respectively.


On March 13, 2015 it was announced that Brown had signed for the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the USL. Brown was seen as a potential starter for the club while Ryan Thompson, the club's regular starter, missed time while away on international duty with Jamaica. Brown made his professional debut on May 16, 2015 against the Richmond Kickers as Thompson was ruled out because of a back injury and was set to leave for international duty the following day. He made several stops in the eventual 1–1 draw with his only goal allowed coming off of a defensive error. Brown finished his first professional season with 14 league appearances for the Riverhounds and another in the club's 2015 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup extra time- defeat to D.C. United. He was also the Riverhounds' goalkeeper in their first round exit of the 2015 USL playoffs as the club was defeated 2–4 in extra time.

In October 2015, Brown announced that he would be joining the Houston Dynamo of Major League Soccer for the 2016 season. The deal was officially announced by the club on December 17, 2015.
