Benjamin T Brillat

Benjamin is an IT Architect with IBM Global Services.  He specializes in Cisco voice and video networks, and has recently earned Cisco CCIE Voice certification.

Ben and Le met in June 2006 in the Atlanta airport.  Ben was on his way home to Troy, NY from Cisco Networkers in Las Vegas, and Le was on her way to her parents' house in Gansevoort, NY.  The flight was very late thanks to the weather, so they talked for hours in the airport and then on the plane.

Ben proposed to Le in December 2009, also at the Atlanta airport... on an empty Delta Boeing 767.
