Brian has been working with Insight Technologies as a Web Developer since October 2016. His passion for his work spills over into his life off the clock, where he often works on creating personal projects at home. Brian’s favorite thing about developing is the challenges. When all of his hard work pays off and the code finally works, it’s an exciting feeling. As technologies are constantly evolving, there are always new skills to learn and improve upon – skills that assist our clients in succeeding in their goals thanks to quality work and exceptional service. Technology is a big part of Brian’s life, and the device he would never want to have to go without is his music player.
In his downtime, Brian enjoys amateur photography and graphics work, as well as playing guitar and keyboard, and writing and singing. He’s a hockey fan and cheers for both UND and the Wild, and has two dogs that help to occupy his time. A lover of National Parks ever since visiting both Yosemite and Yellowstone National Parks in 2012, Brian’s dream vacation is to visit Zion National Park, Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon, and the Grand Tetons on an extended trip.
If given a chance to sit down and have dinner with a famous figure, Brian would choose the philosopher Immanuel Kant. His views that actions are mutually decided on by a society or a group of people and that our actions are not simply using others are something Brian finds very interesting, and his views on ethics have helped to guide Brian a lot over the years.
When asked if he had any words of wisdom to share, two quotes came to mind. The first is Jonathan Swift’s “May you live every day of your life.” It’s a reminder to live to the fullest and be kind to others. The phrase “a simple password to create is a simple password to crack” is one he considers a good bit of technology-related advice.
