About me and this blog

Home / About me and this blog


My name is Stephen and I’m a software developer currently working at Microsoft.  I’ve been a professional  software developer since 2005.  I graduated with a BSEE from the University of Memphis in 2002.

Professionally, I’ve bounced around between companies in an effort to find something that suited me, my style, personality, and growth goals.  So, my experience within various industries is relatively diverse. In terms of technologies, I’ve utilized much of the Microsoft stack over the years: MS SQL, SSRS, VBA, .NET, VB, VB.NET, C#. I jumped on the jQuery/ajax bandwagon early, which has made me a big fan of SPA-type web applications. For these applications, I started out using libraries like knockout (with require, sammy, and others), but moved on to Angular. Thanks to Android, I also have quite a bit of experience working with Java and dabbled in mobile development. I was technical editor for a professional Android development book, as well.

Personally, I’m married to my best friend and we’ve been together since 1992.  We have two children and a pretty good life in Seattle WA.

I’ve gone through many transformations in life and continuously look to improve, grow, and be a better me.
