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 my years working as software developer and architect I became more interested in the big picture and driving the direction of software than actually creating it which led to roles of Product Manager and most recently Director 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, and I haven’t looked back since. It is through this work with PowerShell that I have received the Microsoft MVP award every year since 2008. These days I continue to work with PowerShell along with many other technologies in my role of Director of Learning Innovation at Learn on Demand Systems.
My personal motto is: “Do better, in everything that you do”.
