Short Bio

As a kid, my Electrical Engineering father would create electronic schematics and taught me to solder and put his circuits together before I could write.  Games on the XT 8086 were quickly boring and a little book from the library on BASIC programming opened the world of computers to me.

My Dad’s inventions grew more complex, eventually needing to communicate with the PC, and I started writing communications software.  This grew into traveling to Europe and around the US on contact work.  I’m now finishing up my degree in Computer Engineering from Texas A&M University and will be starting as a Program Manager in Visual Studio at Microsoft in July (2004).

MVP Global Summit

Wow.  Amazing!  Just, wow!  Microsoft is really dedicated to its community and leaders.  These last few days have been incredible!  Various product groups had five story high banners covering the sides of their entire buildings welcoming MVPs.  Everything was run as smoothly and organized as absolutely possible.

I met dozens of top-notch MVPs, including the .NET Rocks! team, and the MS employees producing the development tools we all use.  It was great to discuss my ‘dirty laundry list’ with the C# team and find out the most everything was being addressed in Whidbey.  Steve Ballmer and the vice presidents showed us the vision and direction of Microsoft and made us proud to be on the leading team.

It was just so kewl it made my almost sad to leave the MVP program.  One can’t be both and MVP and MS employee simultaneously.  But my consolation is in the fact that I may be able to make an even bigger impact on the community by making the product we all use, Visual Studio, all the better.  Besides, I’m thrilled about working with the finest development team in the world!  J

  12. Questioned not too long ago to write down about , I have to confess that I had hardly ever heard of like a factor. Some net exploration later on and that i discovered that e cigs are quite a lot a quickly rising concern. A Google lookup discovered there exists no smoke without the need of fire as just about six million outcomes just for the phrase “electronic cigarette” were returned.

    Exactly what is an electric cigarette?

    The electric cigarette may be in existence for almost a few a long time and it’s a clever product geared toward providing people who smoke that has a much healthier possibility. Apparently also valuable in helping to decrease and in fact stop cigarette smoking completely.

    Now in the fourth technology, e cigs have grown to be a great deal extra user friendly than before variations which possibly have been just a little also large to motivate a mass market place attractiveness.

    An electric cigarette incorporates a taste of tobacco but not one of the dangerous substances located in regular cigarettes allowing people who smoke cravings being pleased without having inhaling the many harmful toxins. Can it be all smoke and mirrors? Or can this merchandise seriously be the saviour it wants to be?

    A battery, an atomiser as well as a renewable nicotine chamber will allow the smoker to carry and smoke the electronic cigarette equally as they’d every other cigarette, even developing a “smoke” like vapour and glow with the finish as they attract. The nicotine chamber proves really handy as cartridges can be found in numerous strengths, permitting the user to lessen the quantity of nicotine they intake until if they hope, can give up entirely.

    None people who smoke also will advantage, as their concerns about inactive cigarette smoking are rendered null and void through the e-cigarette. A much more sociable surroundings then!

    Upon reflection the electric cigarette is really a much healthier, less costly and eco-friendly option to smoking and because the consciousness and the sector grows they have got excellent likely to successfully replace the hazardous cigarettes we have all come to be aware of and several of us have appear to dread and fear.
