Story
Tagline
Every day I get to code I feel like an artist.
Introduction

I call myself a .NET Developer.  I am currently working at ILM Professional Services as a Senior II Consultant.  Previously. I managed the development life cycle for web development projects at TempWorks software.  My current programming loves are C#, MVC, jQuery, WebAPI, ASP.NET. I love unit testing (I am such a geek!).  There are many types of programmers; I am a programmer because I love the art of coding.  Every day I get to code I feel like an artist.

I've been in the computer networking realm since I was 11 years old.  I am listed on a national historic list of BBS's.  BBS's operated on modems.  If you don't remember what those are - watch the movie WarGames again.
