I’m a husband, a father, an environmentalist, and a Product Manager. When I was 10 years old when my dad brought home a TRS-80 computer and I started developing an interest in programming. That really dates me, doesn’t it? There was something about the power of those one-liners in Compute! magazine that really got my attention back then. Little did I know then that I was starting down the road towards my future career. Years later I went to university, earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science, and then worked first as a software developer and later an architect for 13 years. During the last few years in my role as software developer and architect I became more interested in the big picture and driving the direction of software than actually creating it and now I work as a Product Manager allowing me to do just that.
I’m very passionate about very few things. For many years this list has only included my family, anything green, and the user experience. In early 2007, PowerShell started taking a very prominent place on that list, so much so that I decided to completely redirect my career towards it. I worked as a member of the PowerGUI® team at Quest Software from late 2007 until mid 2011, and these days I work as Product Manager for PowerWF™ and PowerSE at Devfarm Software. In recognition for my contributions to the PowerShell community during this time I have received the Microsoft MVP award in the Windows PowerShell category in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
My personal motto is: “Do better, in everything that you do”.
