I am a Microsoft Developer Service MVP, running for a Board of Directors position on the .NET Foundation. I have been an MVP since 2008. I have spoken at multiple conferences throughout the last ten years.
Thank you for electing me to the Board of Directors in 2022
Why I’m Running
For 20 years or so I have been in Software Development. During that time I have used many tools, languages, and technologies. I started out programming with a small book on QuickBASIC. I later moved on to Visual Basic for DOS. Windows then came along and I starting using Visual Basic for Windows, I then migrated to Visual Basic .NET and eventually ended up using Visual C#. I work as an Senior Engineering Director at Rocket Mortgage, based in Detroit, MI. I am a public speaker and present internationally on a lot of different technology topics.
One of my primary goals in life is to leave this leave (planet) better than it was when I joined it. I do that in many ways. My favorite way is to grow people and help make them better. I do this through education; blogging, presenting, and public speaking. I also do this by helping others find ways to help themselves grow. I believe that being on the board of the .NET Foundation, I can help the vision of .NET and make it easier for others to adopt and grow themselves. In the past, I have worked with many other talented professionals while serving on the Board of Directors for INETA to help spread the education and adoption of .NET.
For the past 3 years I have been active with the .NET Foundation serving on the Membership Committee
I feel I am very well suited for the position.
