Hi there. I’m Bryan. Nice to meet you. No the pleasure is all mine. What’s that? You want to know more about me? Well, ok.
For a long time I did freelance software development as an independent contractor. Sometimes freelance meant contract work, where I’m essentially a short term employee, and sometimes it meant project based work where I build products or parts of products for individual clients. The project based work tended to be my favorite because I got to be more involved in the process and I like building things. I stopped doing freelance software development to join Siberia where I did similar work but as a full-time employee with a talented team of colleagues rather than as a one man band.
For the latter half of 2011 I was “out of the game” because I was doing volunteer work for tsunami victims with my partner in the Tohoku prefecture of Japan. Prior to our month of volunteer work I was “taking time off” to work on my pet project, Persnicketly. After the voluneering we spent a little over a month and a half traveling around and then spent the holidays with my parents.
