Tell us something about your name (first, middle, last, nick, handle, etc).

My name is Brad, and my parents named my brothers Brian and Brent. They even had a dog named Brandon at one point. I guess they liked the "Br" names!

How did you get interested in: computers, databases, mysql? (pick one or all of the topics)

I got involved in technology recruiting a long time ago, and Wayfair is making a strong move towards MySQL from SQL-Server, which is why I wanted to join this group.

Introduction

I am the Manager of Engineering Recruiting for Wayfair, a 600+ million dollar pre-IPO e-commerce company based in the the Back Bay. We are the largest online only retailer of home goods in the country.
