Hello, my name is Brian Ford and I am passionate about technology. I love exploring new technology and learning how to apply it in order to solve problems. I am constantly looking for new challenges. I enjoy working outside my comfort zone and continuing to learn new languages and development techniques.

I was first introduced to programming when I was 13. I learned how to write Java code in order to automate myself playing an online game. Empowered with this new realization that you can make your computer work for YOU by writing code. I’ve since set out on a journey of exploration and innovation.

When I’m not programming I like to get outside and explore the great city of Boston. I grew up just outside the city and am a huge Patriots, Red Sox and Celtics fan. I also enjoy snowboarding, running and biking.
