Bryan Reich is a man who is hungry for knowledge. An amateur astronomer who says he “finds the challenge of pinpointing deep-sky objects relaxing and intriguing,” Reich finds his greatest professional satisfaction in mastering materials and techniques—from state-of-the-art epoxy/carbon matrices to old-world leatherwork. After completing his training at what was then the 916 Technical Training Program (now Century College), White Bear Lake, Minnesota, he served in a variety of practices, learning each facility’s specialties and methods before moving on. At Oregon Orthotic Services (OOS), Portland, where he now serves, he and two fellow technicians have a combined 50 years of O&P technical experience. “With that knowledge, we can help virtually any individual that comes through OOS’ door,” Reich says.
