I originally hail from Arizona but now reside in the Alps of Switzerland. I spent a large portion of my career (still today) in the casino industry, where I provide the best entertainment to casino players. Brian is a nominated member of the Docker Captain’s program and a seasoned cloud architect. I am also a cloud subject matter expert in AI, iGaming, Open Source, Docker, Cloud Native, DevOps, and container monitoring. Brian is passionate about advocating for Omnichannel for iGaming, Open Source standards for iGaming, cloud, and containers. When I'm not busy trying to containerize everything, I can be found riding my mountain bike or skiing in the Swiss Alps.
I'm a devoted technologist to everything Cloud, actually a Cloud junkie. I'm either testing new features, writing code, presenting Docker, cloud, or both. You can catch me attending Swiss Docker Meetups, Cloud Native Conferences, or just about anything with Cloud or Container in the title.
I am the Chief Online Gaming for a Swiss based online casino Jackpots.ch. Previously, I co-founded 56K.Cloud. I also have some online courses as well like the The Complete Traefik Training Course and Become a Docker Power User with Visual Studio Code.
