In the fast-paced world of digital media that we live and work in every day, innovation is the fuel that keeps us in the lead. So we couldn’t be more pleased to introduce you to T1M’s Innovator of the Year 2010, Bryan Yen.
As one of our Technical Leads, Bryan assists our developers in conceptualizing, architecting and developing successful and innovative solutions for our clients. We love the fact that he’s never content with the status quo. Bryan is constantly searching for efficient new ways to deliver products that are technically sound. What he likes most about his job is having the freedom to engage in the kind of creative exploration that leads to the discovery of innovative solutions. Bryan loves nothing more than being given the challenge of a high stakes project, then enjoying that great feeling of accomplishment once it’s successfully launched.
The pursuit of innovation isn’t just a “day job” for Bryan. In his downtime, he’s a self-professed electronics nerd, photography enthusiast and gadget freak. Oh, and did we mention that he loves to build machines? Bryan was recently selected out of 400 nationwide applicants to serve as the mechanic and engineer on “Team Angry Bird Droppings” in the 2011 Red Bull Soapbox Race in LA this month. Knowing Bryan’s mad skills and determination, we think his competitors should be very afraid. As for us here at T1M? We’re pretty proud of him and we’ll be cheering him on all the way. Besides, you never know when we might need a high pressure feather launcher.
Bryan has been driving innovation here at T1M for almost five years now, so he’s an invaluable member of the team. In fact, he has been such an integral part of T1M’s success story, that we think our CEO Ming Chan has even forgiven Bryan for the time he pranked him one Halloween by putting the “Ringu” girl in his car…and for the fact that he filmed the whole thing with a hidden, motion-sensored camera and posted it all on every social network.
