About Brian R. Bondy
Family is my “raison d’être”. My wife Shannon and I have 3 sons: Link, Ronnie, and Asher.
When I’m not working, I’m usually running while listening to audiobooks. My longest runs were in 2019 with 2 runs just over 100 miles.
I used to work at some pretty cool places including Khan Academy, Mozilla, and Evernote.
