Brian first told us about his very first Apple E computer and his journey up to college when he learned electrical engineering before switching major to computer science. He spoke about his first startup and his learnings, being a software engineer during the "DotCom Era". Brian then told us about the job where he learned most about teamwork and then about scaling applications. And we completed this very logical buildup by talking about the companies he created.

Brian studied computer engineering at the University of Colorado. After graduating, he solved complex technology challenges for companies like Orbitz, BEA, US Freightways, XOR and Texturemedia. Brian is a technology entrepreneur who  bootstrapped both his companies FusionAuth and CleanSpeak where he currently focuses on solving login, registration, and user management challenges.
