Howdy, I'm Ed Martinez, a graduate of Texas A&M and thus the "Howdy" by my name. I am currently a Development Manager on CRM responsible for the Titan schedule and providing guidance to several very competent leads in the space of Outlook, Application Infrastructure, Business Modules, and Reporting. In V3 I was Dev Lead in Reporting, SFA and Excel integration, thus my interest and depth are in those 3 subjects for V3. I like to consider myself very customer centric, so your opinions and future directions mean a tremendous amount to me.
Previously, previously, previously, I was Tech Lead on Publisher 1.0, followed by Dev Lead on Word 6.0 (first Office), then Works. I also left the home ship for a while and helped start a medical software company which sells (and still does) cancer detection software. When I came back I was lucky to be part of great team that shipped CRM 1.2 and 3.0.
On my spare time, I like to spend time with my wife, kids and dog either fly fishing, kayaking, hiking, biking, wind surfing, woodworking, or reading history novels/books (which is not necessarily a thing my dog does very well). Needless to say, the great northwest has been very very good to me.
