Who am I?
My name is Bryan Chain, I live in the Philadelphia area. I am a 30-something graduate of Drexel University with a Bachelors in Computer Engineering and a Masters in Business Administration from Penn State. I work at a large data center company doing Storage Systems Engineering, SAN Administration, and Data Protection for the enterprise. I work primarily with NetApp, Brocade, and IBM based enterprise storage arrays and fiber optic storage area networks. Most of my day is spent on the unix command line. It is relatively uninteresting but definitely has it’s moments.
Outside of work, I am a web designer as a hobbyist and I am always trying to come up with some sort of nifty web idea to make my dream of running a successful business come true. I have yet to make this happen. I also play a ton of video games and watch a lot of movies. In September of 2014 my daughter was born which has given life a whole new meaning. Her name is Kylie and her and my wonderful wife Cassandra are my everything.
I consider myself a bit of a philosopher. I am always asking questions about the why’s and how’s of life and life’s mysteries. My view on life is highly cynical and I tend to question everything.
Why should you read my blog?
Well, I don’t know. I am not a very good writer, and you’ll never see me claim to be one. However, I do believe I have a pretty witty and cynical opinion of most things which hopefully at least a few people might find enjoyable to read. While I am decently educated, please do not flame me for my lack of good grammar.
I also tend to think a lot, so much so that if I didn’t have post-it notes or Google Notebook to scribble random stuff onto, I would probably never sleep. So, maybe having a creative outlet such as this might help calm my inner demons.
