Hi. I'm Bryan.
I'm a staff frontend developer at Patreon and a former leader of the Node.js project. I love public speaking and working with the rest of the tech community. I also do a lot of LED art. Oh, and this one time, I got a Ph.D. in electrical engineering. Good times.
I am deeply passionate about building inclusive and welcoming technical teams and communities. Learning how we can improve ourselves and grow is a driving force in my life. Exploring how my bisexuality informs my life has been a long, sometimes painful, and deeply meaningful journey.
Outside of tech I'm a photographer, occasional writer, a once upon a time pianist, and wine aficionado. I currently live in Oakland with my amazing partner Mel.
I go by @nebrius online, and purple is my favorite color.
