Look at their opinions!
Standout talent with the drive to consistently contribute and improve himself.

Working with Brandon, I saw a highly motivated individual who loved a challenge and took it upon himself to help the team and company succeed. Not satisfied with doing just what was in his job description, Brandon went beyond his assigned responsibilities and made valuable contributions to multiple projects. His quick wit is also an asset to team chemistry and made him well liked by his peers and management.

Brandon has earned my highest recommendation and deserves serious consideration for any IT team.

Working with Brandon at dck was a pleasure. Any IT issue I encountered, he resolved. Will miss you at dck, good luck.
Bud Honn Honn LLC Construction
While working with Brandon at dck worldwide he was always very personable with a very positive and upbeat attitude. Brandon is someone who could reliably be counted on to complete tasks and projects on time.

He would also frequently delve into new and challenging situations, where independent research was often required.

Brandon is one of those people for whom technology and troubleshooting comes as second nature, and I can highly and without reservation recommend him.

Back in Houston!

Everything is bigger in Texas.

After nearly a 2 year hiatus, I returned to Houston today. The Texas coastal bend was a beautiful sight with amazing birds and wildlife! I'm excited to be back in the greatest city in America.


A brief history of the making

Born on the outskirts of Boston, Massachusetts, and then, at a later age, relocating to southern Maine, Mr. Coughlin originates from the New England area. It is there where he began his educational path at Southern Maine Community College, in South Portland, Maine. While maintaining a full-time job to afford his education, Brandon balanced his employment duties and a full workload of classes as part of the Computer Technology program. He ultimately graduated with a 3.18 GPA.

After successfully completing his Associates degree, Brandon made the leap in reloating to Pittsburgh. Visiting the picturesque city, he quickly fell in love with it and decided to enroll in Waynesburg University's Computer Forensics program. 35 minutes south of the City, Waynesburg is located just a short commute from downtown Pittsburgh and, to its South, is Morgantown, West Virgina.
