I live in Seattle, WA. I’ve been writing software professionally since 2000, primarily in the Microsoft technologies space. I’m a passionate advocate of Automated testing. I run a successful internship program at my company which we use to pipeline people into our development organization. Recently I’ve begun leading a DevOps effort which involves migrating our deployment infrastructure from Chef to Octopus Deploy.

When I’m not geeking out about tech I enjoy practicing guitar, drinking craft beer, eating bacon, dancing tango with my wife, and sharing my opinions about everything.
