About

Hi I'm Bryan M. Howell.

I began building web sites in the late 90s. It accidentally became my career. I love building intuitive and simple user interfaces that help people accomplish their tasks so that they can resume their busy day. I've used and worked with so many tools in my 20+ year career, that it is almost pointless to try and have that discussion. I prefer the Microsoft tech stack, because of the tools and user friendliness. In the same way that I like simple UI, I like my development and design tools to be as simple and consistent as possible. I like Agile / Scrum when implemented realistically. I like organizations that are realistic about what their real requirements are and that can retain their focus on their core competencies. I do not play politics. I do not backstab. I do not like drama. I just like to solve problems WHILE keeping a smile on everyone's face. In summary, I am far from perfect, but I have been around the block with technology. I bring a level of expertise without getting stuck in "this is the way we've always done it."
