Who you are?

I have worked in MCS for the last 12 years, focusing on business productivity &  application platform development, more recently strategic consulting.WP_20140129_10_09_57_Pro

What makes you “tick”?

I most enjoy solving problems and being an agent of positive change for our customers. I enjoy collaborating inside and outside of Microsoft to bring people together to drive creative solutions, and I have a real passion about tackling the hard problems that have never been adequately solved before.

Where you live?

Columbus, OH

Why are you active in the Rangers program?

I have been a TFS user since it’s early days, sometimes taking the administrator or power user roles. I also have a background in cloud services, so the Rangers program is an opportunity to bring these two focus areas together. I also believe that the TFS toolset is an excellent solution, with great flexibility to drive consistency into the software engineering process of a wide variety of project types.

What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why?
