Why are you active in the Rangers Program

I want to help the community and continue to gain exposure to a great team inside and outside of Microsoft (Rangers).  I also get to see some great projects and practices that help me in my role at Microsoft.

What is the best Rangers project you worked in and Why

The next version of Branching and Merging guidance is exciting for me because I often work with Microsoft customer’s tackling many of the challenges that we hope to tackle in this upcoming project!
