BRUCE BUI

bruce-bui-popupBruce is a small-town guy at heart — born and raised in Iowa — but his passion for adventure and filling his curiosity is what brought him to big city life. As a Northwestern University graduate, he began his engineering career with an Oracle-ATG firm in Chicago developing e-commerce and web-based applications. By result of working directly alongside business analysts and project managers, he’s focused his development based on a deep knowledge of functionality and usability. Building software and learning the intricacies of each component is one-half of what he enjoys; seeing how those technological solutions enrich people’s work and lives is the other.

Outside of talking to computer systems and understanding their sometimes stubborn ways, Bruce enjoys cooking (and, of course, eating), cycling, and connecting with people through food, travel, and culture. Unless it’s fantasy football season.
