A bit about me


Brian,  Bruce,  BriOnH:  Brian is my Christian name given to me by my wonderful parents.  Bruce is what some of my closest friends call me.  BriOnH is the "handle" I use on the internet.  Ultimatly, no matter what you call me (hey be nice! :) ), I am glad you you are here.

Thoughts from my Twitter

Like all, I am many things.  Firstly I am a Catholic. Seeking Enlightenment.  I am a scientist.  I am an athelete.  I am a musician.  I am a computer programmer.  But mainly, I Just am.

In fact, the moment that judgment stops through acceptance of what is, you are free of the mind.

-Eckhart Tolle

View Places Brian Hartigan Has Lived in a larger map
I currently live in the town of Danville California USA. Growing up the son of an executive for United Airlines I moved around a lot in the US. I have lived in Denver, Reno, Illinois, and Washington. After high school I spent a couple of years in San Diego, where the bulk of my education at that time was surfing and kung-fu. After that I moved back up by my parents in Walnut Creek CA and studied Biology/Biochemistry at Holy Names University in Oakland CA. After HNU I followed in my Fathers, and Grandfathers footsteps (Both named James Hartigan [sr/jr]) and did a brief stint at United Airlines, but it's when my Father and about 9-11 others of us started Integres up by Sacramento CA that my career as a computer programmer really took off. Living in California with the spoils that go with it, and programming are, simply put, sweet. I like to travel, especially to warm, preferably tropical, places. I don't particularly like moving much anymore, but probably have some moves ahead of me.
