This post is part of an ongoing series of Rangers introductions. See An index to all Rangers covered on this blog for more details.
Who are you?
I am a aficionado of software! I've worked hard to obtain my MS in Software Engineering and BS in Computer Science alongside deep experience in many different projects. I currently work as a Microsoft Solutions Architect with CEI, concentrating on ALM solutions.
What makes you tick?
Software Engineering. I am the second most frequent author on the Software Engineering article on Wikipedia. I see ALM as software engineering in this decade. The name may change, but the principles and best practices don't! I enjoy helping make developers jobs easier and more efficient!
Where do you call home?
Reston, Virginia. About 60 K people in a great planned community 20 miles west of Washington, DC. We call it the Dulles Corridor (our version of Silicon Valley).
Why are you active in the Rangers Program?
Because I believe in the power of Visual Studio ALM to improve software developers lives and software organizations! I want to spread the good word and help it be used to its greatest value.
What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why?
The Build project was the best as it was closest to my heart at the time and was a feature that was drastically altered in 2010 for the better! Just needed some good documentation to with it that the project provided!
