About Us

About Us, in this case, means "about me"

I work for Tektronix as the manager of the Digital Solutions Architecture team. I also chair the OASIS XLIFF Technical Committee. For 10 years I was a head coach for various youth hockey teams. Most recently I was the head coach for the Sherwood High School hockey team (5 seasons). I have not coached for a few years now, but I have a feeling I might coach again in the coming years. I am a ski enthusiast (season ticket holder each year at Mt. Hood Meadows in Oregon). My latest hobby (obsession) is to twrite and record albums of all these songs rattling around in my head (write the songs, play all the instruments, record using Logic software). I seem to be collecting guitars lately. I have one solo album out that you can buy at all the usual spots, like iTunes, Amazon, etc. (http://bryanschnabel.com/shop), and one collaboration EP I did (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/crossing-the-water-ep/id486472978).

I have a wife and two children. My wife and I live in Sherwood Oregon. My son lives in Hillsboro Oregon (just graduated from the University of Oregon). He works at Yahoo! My daughter lives in Portland Oregon and graduated from Portland State University. She also works at Yahoo!

Finding out even more about me

It's funny, I have three social media accounts, and on each, I have a distinct "persona" I'm trying to pull off.

My LinkedIn Connection

You can find me at Bryan Schnabel on linkedin (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/bryan-schnabel/7/509/a86). I try my best to be a respectable business type. Although I do use a picture of me playing bass. I head the very serious XLIFF group on linkedin. But on the other hand, I also head the "Respectable Business People Who Love Raucous Music" group.

My Album's Facebook

You can find me at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bryan-Schnabel/630918136923701. I post my songs, try to act cool, and do the usual bio stuff. In some cases I think it would be dreadful if my linkedin crowd ever met my Facebook music crowd.

My Twitter Connection

To find me on Twitter, check out https://twitter.com/bryanschnabell. On Twitter, I'm kind of all over the map. I have not decided whether to be a professional business person, a music guy, or some kind of geeky-programmer-guitar player-ski bum-guitar collector.

I have a social email address that most of my friends already know. So I won't post it here. You can reach me at my "commercial" email address, jedi.grunge (at) gmail (dot) com.
