This post is part of an ongoing series of Rangers introductions. See Ranger Index (Who is Who?) for more details.
Who you are?
I am a Senior Software Developer/Build Engineer working for Microsoft IT.
What makes you “tick”?
Working with IT software engineering teams to realize their full potential. I am very passionate about software engineering processes and how Microsoft technology such of Visual Studio and Team Foundation fits into the process puzzle. Outside of software engineering I pursue the marriage of photography and chemistry, some what a modern day photo alchemist that is busy practicing alternative photographic process developed in 19th and early 20th centuries.
Where you live?
I am an east coast transplant living in rural Carnation, Washington.
Why are you active in the Rangers program?
I strongly believe in the ability of Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server to help software engineers efficiently deliver quality software. A passion to be actively involved in helping further improve Microsoft's development tools and enabling people to leverage these tools in a way that drives maximum value.
What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why?
I am a new member of the team and look forward to participating in opportunities involving DevOps, build , deploy, and monitoring.
