I joined Microsoft as a Support Engineer on the Performance team in September 2005.  Prior to that I spent a couple of years working the late night shift on our Platforms 24x7 team.  Working for Microsoft was always a dream job - so I am living the dream!  I was on the Windows Vista / Longhorn Server Beta team in 2006, which was one of the coolest projects I have ever worked on, until I took on the task of driving the AskPerf Blog.  From July 2007 until now, I've served in the role of Knowledge Engineer for the Performance team - working not only on blogging but also a number of other internal and external content projects for my group.

As you can tell by the logo on the left, I am a huge Manchester United fan.  Away from work and sports I am a movie fan and have an extensive DVD collection.  I'm also a gamer (I'm sure that comes as no surprise to any of you).  I primarily play MMO's, and have actually played most of the major MMO's of the last decade (Everquest, SWG, DAoC, MXO, World of Warcraft, Aion).  My XBox and I spend a fair amount of time together as well!

I do have my own personal blog at BangAnalyze.com.  I've been neglecting work on that blog over the last couple of years while I've been focusing on AskPerf.  However, I will be spending more time focusing on that blog here very shortly.  You can also follow me on Twitter!

Finally - the personal stuff.  My daughter and I live in Grand Prairie, TX which is about a fifteen minute drive away from the Microsoft campus in Las Colinas.  Most Friday afternoons I can be found at The Ranch at Las Colinas unwinding from the week.  If you're in the neighborhood on a Friday afternoon, stop by and say hello!
