Hello, my name is Brian.


I'm a designer and computer scientist. I'm passionate about education, software engineering, and art. I currently work as a software engineer at the edtech company Juni Learning.

At heart I am a software engineer. I love writing code. I read constantly on how to improve: my favorite recent books/courses have been Designing Data Intensive Applications, HTML/CSS on Udemy, Clean Code, The Effective Engineer, and The Senior Engineer.

I love reading about business + design as well. Founders at Work, The Design of Everyday Things, Peopleware, and The Innovators Dilemma have been my favorites there.

Random aside: I did not intend this but over the years I've had some success in the art world. I'm not 100% why/when this happened but I think it's because I just like making things with cool people :). I've found that's led to some really awesome outcomes. My work has been exhibited at BAMPFA, Art Basel, Oh Bay Cultural Park, The Ivy Film Festival and 299 Park Avenue.
