He has been a Microsoft Certified Professionsal (MCP) since 2003, Microsoft Certified Application Developer (MCAD) and Microsoft Certified Developer (MCSD) since 2005. He was a three time Microsoft MVP - ASP/ASP.NET from July 2007 to July 2009. From 2009 to 2012, he was a very successful Senior Application Development Manager for Microsoft and delivered solutions and support for numerous Fortune 100 companies.

Prior to joining Microsoft, he was also the Vice President, Speakers Bureau for INETA (International .NET Association), President of the Tulsa Developers .NET users group, founder and President of the Tulsa SQL Server Group and Tulsa Java Developers Group, and Vice President of the Tulsa SharePoint Interest Group. He was the Founder and has been the Chairman of the region's largest and highly successful technical training event, now going on 20 consecutive years, TulsaTechFest.com and TechFests.com.

In his 18 years working with Sitecore, he has found that to a certain degree it is a niche product and therefore the information and things that he needs are not always easily found when he needs them.

His primary goal is to utilize this site to document and track best practices, code, findings, research, resources, utilities and anything else that he finds as it relates to Sitecore, Azure, .NET, Microsoft, SQL Server, SharePoint, Application Development, Software Development LifeCycle Management, Agile, SCRUM, Software Craftsmanship and anything else that comes to mind and proves benefical.

Recently he has focused on a wide range of newer technologies, including: IoT, Azure, Azure Machine Learning, Artifical Intelligence, Business Intelligence, AppFabric, MEF (Managed Extensibility Framework), SharePoint, WindowsPhone and Windows8/WindowsStore applications. He has been using WCF (Windows Communication Foundation) and WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) since the first Beta release back in 2005/2006!

He will primarily be documenting and preserving them here, so that he does not have to hunt for them again. If it becomes a resource for someone else as well, then he will be truly humbled and extremely happy.
