Brian is currently an Engineering Manager in Infrastructure at Kickstarter, an organization that helps artists, musicians, filmmakers, designers, and other creators find the resources and support they need to make their ideas a reality. Brian spent time at Snag as both a Director and Principal Architect focusing in DevOps and Data Engineering.
Brian is a technologist focused on the new, next, and evolving technologies regardless of
platform. He enjoys a good challenge, so the most interesting projects for him tend to span disciplines (infrastructure, network, software, data, etc.) and involve a lot of moving parts. Firmly planted in the cloud, he finds that he is always looking for better ways to build more portable, scalable, and resilient systems to take advantage of the growing tide of networks oriented towards distributed workloads and highly available paradigms.
