I have a bachelor's degree from Whitman College and a Masters in Computer Science from the University of Illinois. I have worked at Microsoft since 1997. I started on the DirectXMedia team testing multimedia components in IE4. I spent 12 years working on multimedia where I worked on Media Center, media pipelines (DirectShow and Media Foundation), DVD, video rendering, and audio. Next I was the test development manager responsible for Windows Runtime in Windows 8 and 8.1. I continue to work in the operating system group and am focused on trying to bring more data driven techniques to quality.
