I work for Microsoft in the Windows Azure team helping design the next generation cloud identity platform for people and businesses around the world. I lead the design of the SDKs for all Non-Microsoft platforms for this effort, including node.js, Java, PHP on the server and Android and iOS on devices. I also drive the open sourcing of Microsoft protocol and identity libraries and work to modernize the development experience for developers at Microsoft.
I joined Microsoft in 2008 as part of the scrappy team to build the competitor to Google Apps, which became Office365.
