Farnes Introduction

Hello, my name is Brian Farnes, I currently live in Western Washington with my wife and two school-aged boys. I’m originally from Alaska, mostly Cordova but I’ve lived in several other places as well, including Fairbanks which is where I met my wife.

Currently I run the corporate safety program for a local video game company, and in my spare time I’ve been taking classes in the UAF eCampus HSEM program since they tend to be relevant to my job. I’m not actually in a degree program so these classes are purely out of personal interest on my part. This semester I’m taking the two classes in the HSEM program that are more focused on HR so it will be interesting to see how they compare to the internal programs offered by my company’s organizational development team.
