I’m a solutions architect in the Architecture Strategy team at Microsoft where I spend my time thinking, mining and prescribing architecture concepts, models, patterns and approaches for building software solutions that meet today’s enterprises’ needs.

I’m currently interested in all things, philosophical and otherwise, that concern the practice of service orientation.

Here are some of my recent publications that should reveal a lot more about my technical background:
