Hi, I'm Brian

My areas of expertise include C#, ASP.Net, Microsoft web technologies, API design, Services (REST, WCF), SQL Server, creating reusable frameworks and Sitecore. I am passionate about learning new tools and technologies and helping others succeed.

A Little About Me

My single greatest accomplishment is being the father of a wonderful daughter.  Below is a pic of us in Quito, Ecuador on our way to the Galapagos Islands.  What an experience!

In Equador

I've done a lot of traveling for both business and pleasure.  I've been to Ecuador, Germany (twice), India, Ireland, Italy (twice), London (twice), Paris, and Spain.  Of all the places that I've been I enjoyed Germany the most and plan to return.  My brother and I went there in 2015 with the goal of driving on the Autobahn - which we did in a new BMW M5.  Talk about a rush!

In case you haven't guessed, I like cars.  I'm a member of the BMW Car Club of America, frequent the local Cars and Coffee events and participate in high performance driving events (HPDE) when I can.  I've also attended the BMW Performance Driving School a couple of times in Greer, SC and can highly recommend it.  You really do learn a lot that can be applied to everyday driving.  I'm planning to do the 2-day M School soon so I can get the most out of my 2018 BMW M2.
