My name is Brian and I am a full time geek! Before being pulled in to a real estate firm as their digital marketing guru I was Operations Manager/Senior Network Engineer/Lead Color Digital Imaging Technician for a medium sized Copier/Printer/IT firm.
I am the only child to my awesome parents, Robert and Wanda Bell, who will soon be celebrating 53 years of marriage. My father is an exceptional artist and craftsman and enjoys replicating antique furniture in his retirement. My mother is an antiques and history lover as well and they travel the country often, seeking that rare find and taking in the sights. They operate Pastimes Antiques of Tennessee together.
I currently live in Christiana Tennessee just about 9 miles southeast of the geographical center of Tennessee where I was everything from Engineer to Assistant Chief of our Fire Department for over 15 years. I also have a side gig, Bravo Technologies, where I offer domains and hosting, website design, SEO & SEM, Social Marketing, Video & Audio Production, and much more.
I am a husband and father of 3 teens, the oldest of which is currently attending UT Knoxville (GBO!). She aspires to have MD after her name but is seriously looking at a business degree that would provide more flexibility and less liability. Her tenacity, intuition, and dedication to her long term goals make us very proud.
My brilliant and kind middle son is homeschooled in his senior year due to some issues and has letters behind his name like ASD, ADHD, OCD, EDS, and ITP. He wants to be an NFL quarterback, a chef, a sponsored competitive gamer, and work with animals in his spare time.
My youngest daughter is a freshman in high school and is quite the socialite. Quick witted and keenly aware, I can see her being an attorney. She was a nationally ranking competitive cheerleader and was going to pursue that until a pair of 2.5′ titanium rods to correct an 80 degree curvature in her spine dictated otherwise.
My awesome (and beautiful) wife has put up with me for over 20 years and is a stay at home mom. Well, she is very much more than that! She is a vigorous proponent of Autism awareness and champions the cause to promote the research and cure for Ehlers Danlos Syndrome as well as ITP. She is also a firefighter in our department and volunteers in other ways in the community.
I have been taking things apart since i was old enough to handle a screwdriver and, over the years, have figured out how to put stuff back together. My toys growing up were oscilloscopes, Z80 based microprocessors, tools, and the like and I am heavily addicted to all things technical. I look forward to bringing hi-tech to you! Feel free to contact me if you wish.
