I’m a software developer working in the Twin Cities area, passionate about .NET technologies.
My focus is on developing desktop applications on Windows, as well as working on server-side components (web services and database). I also do some work in developing native apps on iOS.
The technology stack that I currently work with includes XAML (WPF and Windows Store), C#, SQL Server, Entity Framework, WCF Data Services, Azure and Xamarin.iOS for iPhone/iPad clients.
I’ve been a full-time software developer for 27 years, spending a good chunk of that time as a C++ developer.
I’ve also spent significant time working with Windows Forms, MFC, ActiveX, COM, and VB6/VB.NET. I started my career in the mid 1980s writing Ada and C applications on VAX/VMS, transitioning to the Windows platform in the early 1990s.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science (University of Minnesota, 1987) and a Master of Science degree in Software Design and Development (University of St. Thomas, 1994).
