BrianSnyder_600x600

Brian has been with Worktank since 2001 and his primary role is solution building and app development, but he also assists with company strategy and management. His favorite aspect of the job is the constant change – the evolution of what’s possible. Brian is always looking for opportunities to solve a new problem.

As our resident tech guru, we often rely on Brian to translate technical jargon for us, and his calming personality makes him a pleasure to work with. Unless, of course, he has to be on site at 4:30 am. That’s easily his least favorite part of the job. 

 

What is one thing you wish clients knew about Worktank?
The full range of our combined experience and what we can do. How we go the extra mile for our customers, and how flexible we are. We are not tied to one solution; we scale and grow with our customers. (Okay, so that was three things.) 

How do you like to spend your time outside of the office?
Hiking. Photography. Working on my house. Games. Live music.

How many pets do you have, and what are their names?
One dog, Howard. One cat, Alice.  

If you could have one superpower what woud it be?
Flying. Because, what else?

What is one of your favorite quotes?
"A finger pointing at the moon is not the moon."

What is your favorite book of all time?
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. Because it’s “grounded magic”. All of the super powers are thought-through and cohesive. There’s an internal logic to the world view. It’s not just mystical woo woo. 

What is your favorite movie of all time?
If I had to pick just one, the original Star Wars. Because it was the most impactful. I remember seeing that and was instantly hooked on sci fi. My favorite movie of the last 10 years? Royal Tenanbaums.

What is your favorite place in the world, and why?
Maui, Hawaii. Probably Wailei or Kehei. It’s just the best place on earth. Mai tais and snorkeling. Need I say more?

What is the best or worst thing you have ever eaten?
Best: Fish curry at Mama’s Fish House on Maui. Worst: Breaded fish thing my mom made when I was a kid. Second place is probably caviar.
