Background

About Brian

As a life long technologist, I've spent my life learning and solving new problems using existing tools. Every solution begins with a problem, but every solution does not require a new technology. The key to finding an unfair advantage is to exploit a technology or system in a novel and unexpected way.

I have built prototype systems and supported multi-tenant SaaS products. Everything from brand new development stacks to 10+ year old legacy code.

In my spare time I like to work with: mobile responsive sites, serverless microservice implementations, and containerized processing.

In the future, I'm looking to build a cloud native services stack that can iterate quickly, maintain reliability, provide maximum business value, and ultimately scale affordably.

I am in search of nothing but an unfair advantage. To exploit the design or intention of a physical system which renders the impossible to be possible, if only for a moment, the right moment. - Mark Donohue
