Having worked in a variety of environments – rapidly growing startup, web hosting, eCommerce, search marketing – Brian has had a chance to interface with many different languages, frameworks, and platforms. The decision to focus on open source technologies a few years back was a crucial step toward career bliss. Contributing for a while as a prolific forum member and platform evangelist for the Prado framework helped cement the value of how working together and sharing information can benefit both the individual and the group. Unfortunately the specific companies Brian worked for always treated Python like the girlfriend your parents draw the wrong conclusions about, but he kept the affair going over the years and now with Lincoln Loop the two are happily together on a full-time basis.
As a serial enthusiast, Brian is often absorbing various tech-related feeds, learning about different ways to apply technology, and lurking on mail lists. Free from the overhead of office life, he is now able to seriously pursue his own projects which mostly revolve around internet radio and digital media. When away from the warm glow of the monitor you’ll find him mountain biking, skiing, traveling, debating politics, enjoying music, taking your money at poker or watching a Laker game. Brian is thankful to have his wife of several years and enjoys living in Claremont, CA
