Brian helps students understand the importance of recognizing code repetition and eliminating it by programming code that allows code to work for itself. He also believes a task should never be done more than twice; one time to complete it, and another to automate it.

When I'm Not Teaching
He enjoys reading and studying history. Topics such as: the history of aerial combat, specifically 1914 to 1945; Greek mythology; the Peasant's Revolt, or Wat Tyler's Rebellion; the American Revolution; and much more. With so much that is interesting in the world, he believes we need to automate the boring stuff and spend more time exploring.
Brian serves as faculty sponsor for the Cyber Crime Investigators, and the Campus Gaming Club.
