Brian Ferry

Full-Stack Web Developer


Born and raised here in North Carolina, went to college at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I got my degree in Software Information Systems and German. Currently working as a full stack web developer in Raleigh, NC.

In my free time I enjoy playing video games, listening to podcasts, and programming. Try to travel at least once per year to somewhere I’ve never been. I also enjoy reading books on philosophy and history, with my current attention being drawn more towards Ancient Rome.
