Visual Studio and Development Technologies
First year awarded:
Number of MVP Awards:
I am now a five-time MVP as well as an ASP.NET Insider. I got my start on the VIC20 and later the C-64. I moved from BASIC to Pascal, Turbo Pascal and eventually Delphi, spent some time coding in VB6 before moving to .NET and finally transitioned to c# where I've been now for over a decade. I always enjoy learning new technologies, frameworks and libraries. I am fortunate to be one of the ASP.NET Monsters along with my good friends David Paquette and Simon Timms. I maintain an active blog and like to yak up technology on the Twitters. These days I work as a consultant in the consumer lending software space and spend time writing APIs, ASP.NET MVC web sites and maintaining GenFu. You will also see me trying to help out on technical forums, contributing to a few open source projects and behind closed doors where I enjoy mentoring others and leading brown-bag lunch sessions exploring various aspects of computer science. Beyond my technology interests (which span from web to cloud to mobile) I am also active in the community raising funds to alleviate poverty, provide clean drinking water and to help find a cure for Juvenile Diabetes.
