Hello! If you're reading this you might want to know a bit about what I do. I am a Principal Technical Evangelist for Microsoft's Visual Studio Application Lifecycle Management technologies. I have the pleasure of working with all of the great people who make up the product development, marketing, and field teams who work on Visual Studio's application lifecycle management capabilities. Every day we strive to help make software development and testing teams around the world more efficient at what they do best: building great software.

I have co-authored a few books on the topic, the latest of which are Professional Application Lifecycle Management with Visual Studio 2012 and Professional Team Foundation Server 2012.

I also get to co-host a weekly software development news show with my friend and co-worker Dan Fernandez. Check us out every Friday(ish), bringing you This Week on Channel 9.

I've been with Microsoft since 2002. Prior to my current role I worked on the XNA team, and before that the Visual Studio team. Before joining Microsoft I co-founded a couple of companies, including a web design company 352 Media Group. I also worked at Barr Systems for a while as a support analyst/professional services consultant, specializing in mainframe-to-PC connectivity and printing solutions (useless knowledge now, but it was fun stuff at the time!).

When I'm not working I am usually climbing something or making music.

If you want to know more, just email me.
