A completely self-taught technician, Brian completed only two semesters of college before leaving to pursue other interests. Brian never stopped playing with computers, however, and he eventually landed a position as a systems administrator. One day, Brian met DigitalOcean's VP of Strategy at an art opening the company hosted—and was readily recruited to join the ranks of cloud history.
Because Brian works from home, his days often begin with early morning dog walks and dropping his kids off at school. Around 8:00 AM, Brian returns to his home office, answers emails, and embarks on a full day of programming. He focuses on building topic-based log streaming for new systems—providing monitoring metrics and alerting information about company infrastructure.
