Who am I?mugshot

I’m the CTO for Discover Technologies.   I started working with Microsoft technologies in 1993 while serving in the US Air Force and finishing my degree in Computer Science.  Since then I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of platforms in multiple engagements with a heavy focus on delivering solutions for clients within federal agencies.

What makes me tick?

I have always enjoyed working as part of a team to tackle objectives that no one person could complete.  Outside of technology I have a passion for organized sports which I enjoy sharing with my wife and 2 children.  

Where I live?

In Lorton, VA.  

Why am I active in the Rangers program?

I’ve worked with TFS since its first release and have been routinely tasked to leverage the platform for both client and internal development activities.  I am looking forward to having the ability to help shape future revisions of the product based on feedback received from the field.

What is the best Ranger project I have worked on?

I haven’t had a chance to participate in a Ranger project yet but I am looking forward to joining an effort in the near future.
