This post is part of an ongoing series of Rangers introductions. See An index to all Rangers covered on this blog for more details.

Who you are?

I am currently a Senior Consultant with Microsoft Services, US Central Region, South Central District

What makes you “tick”?

Family, friends, and my work with software and technology. I’m passionate about software development because I enjoy creating solutions that make a difference in someone’s life. Creating innovative solutions to enterprise challenges is invigorating and I get plenty of opportunity to do that on customer engagements, but the little efficiencies introduced by innovation at the home are enjoyable as well.

Where you live?

Austin, TX

Where is the place you call home?

Austin, TX. Originally from New Orleans, LA but Austin has been my home for 20 years.

Why are you active in the Rangers program?

Participating in then Rangers program has enabled me to work with and learn from other ALM community members. ALM is very important to mature software development and I enjoy participating and contributing to projects that carry these principles to the community.

What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why?

It’s difficult to pick just one; however, I particularly enjoyed the close collaboration with the MS product team and experiencing the excitement of one of our customers during the creation of the VS 2010 Database Guidance project.
