Personal Background
Bio I am a senior software engineer presently working for a Microsoft technology partner in their eBusiness unit. My experience in the eCommerce space dates back to 1996 and the launch of the MS Merchant Server product (back when everyone said no one would buy anything over the Internet). I have designed and developed solutions both in the B2C space using a combination of technologies, in addition to custom line of business applications of various sizes and colors. My core technology set is MS .Net (C#), MS SQL Server, and Commerce Server working up and down all application tiers. I am equally comfortable working the Presentation tier and all of the usability aspects in that space as I am working the business and data tiers.
