  25. 25. 31 Brian B. Senior Engineer at Mozilla Brian loves words, whether those words make up hundreds of lines of code or the sentences of a novel. His job at Mozilla involves a combination of both, since he codes and writes specifications for others who want to use the tools he builds. Words aside, he loves playing games, chopping wood(!) and cooking. Did we mention he rocks a bass (and a wicked hairstyle) in more than one band?

His path is full of different jobs and adventures from rock-climbing to making tofu and being a psychologist at a youth detention center.
