About Me

I am currently working as a Programming Writer at Microsoft, and I have been with Microsoft since December of 1995. I worked in Microsoft Technical Support for IIS 1.0 through IIS 5.0, and as a Programming Writer for IIS 6.0 and IIS 7.0. I was a Program Manager on the IIS Product Team for IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, and IIS 8.0, where I was responsible for IIS Express, URL Rewrite, and the Web Publishing technologies (FTP, WebDAV, FPSE). On the side I occasionally play guitar and hammered dulcimer for a musical group that’s a mixture of acoustic jazz, bluegrass, and celtic influences (http://www.hammeron.com/).
