So I finally rolled off my last gig, which had occupied me for the last 18 months.  In the last 18 months, I learned a lot about how my customer did business, and thanks to a great account team, learned how Microsoft does business.

I liked the business aspect of the job a lot, enough to inspire me to move to a new team.  I have moved onto the West Architecture team and will be working with customers throughout the Desert, Mountain, and SoCal parts of the US.  It includes working with CIO's and VP's at numerous customers and helping account teams figure out how Microsoft can help them solve customer problems.  I hope to be involved in a lot of sales cycles from initial talks all the way to implementation, ensuring that out technologies are deployed the best possible way.

Sounds kinda like a sales guy, sorry about that....
