As an experienced Supply Chain Professional, focusing on the big picture while paying attention to details has always been my recipe for tackling any task.

I am also very keen on developing and maintaining excellent relations all throughout, which I believe is the icing on the cake in exceeding expectations, providing the ultimate satisfaction to the end user, and in supporting the OISE community at large.

Apart from being somewhat of a techie, I am a father of 3 and we love spending plenty of time together. Whether it be exploring the outdoors, travelling, shopping, or simply enjoying tech videos, you will find us together exploring the big picture of life.

As the longest-serving member of the Education Commons team, I have seen dramatic change in our technologies and services over the years. Still, the guiding principle remains the same: to provide the highest quality service in an approachable, friendly way. In my current role as Information & Communications Technology (ICT) Analyst, I take great pride in realizing the spirit of that principle every day. Developing strong relationships within OISE and beyond is the foundation of everything I do, both professionally and personally. Whether I鈥檓 setting up audio-video for an OISE event, enabling video collaboration, advising researchers and instructors on their best technology options, or overseeing the provision of hardware and software to meet a need within a budget, it鈥檚 always all about the people I鈥檓 working with.

In my time with the Education Commons as a Senior Developer, I鈥檝e been privileged to work with our team supporting the OISE community. I enjoy the creation of technological solutions for life鈥檚 little problems. Some might call it laziness, but I鈥檇 rather automate something than have to do it a second time. That鈥檚 why I derive pleasure from building software for the web, mobile and desktop platforms that takes the repetitiveness out of day to day tasks for the OISE community, while adding consistency to workflows and output.

Brian Whelan

Service Delivery Specialist

A small-town guy from Ireland, I have experience in industries ranging from Education to Tech start-ups. I have found that nothing satisfies me more than meeting new people, developing new relationships, solving problems, and contributing to the overall success of a business.

After three years of living and working in the education industry in South Korea, I moved to Canada to restart my career in IT. An IT professional, I bring years of experience working in service desks dealing with hardware, software and network related issues. I hold two cybersecurity certificates and the Cisco CCNA, and spend most of my time self-studying. My goal is to bring these skills to the OISE community in the role of a Service Delivery Specialist.

On a personal level, I love to travel having spent over a year backpacking Europe, the Middle East and Asia. In my free time, I play disc golf almost daily and am an avid supporter of Arsenal football club in the UK.
