I am a 31 year old software developer from Boise, Idaho. I have been working with computers since approximately age 12, when my 6th grade teacher got me hooked. My parents got me a Commodore 64 for Christmas that year, and it's been downhill ever since.
I have taught myself software development, beginning with Microsoft's Visual Basic 4.0. Approximately 5 years ago, I was given an opportunity to work in the tech field for a company called HealthCast. HealthCast's web-based technology solutions manage and control access to applications and patient information stored in legacy systems, client-server applications, or web solutions.
I left HealthCast in February 2003, to pursue a fantastic opportunity with Healthwise. Healthwise provides content to organizations and informs people to help them make better health decisions, creating Prescription-Strength Information™ tools that doctors trust and consumers use.
I have been working with the .NET framework since version 1.0, beta 2 and have not looked back since. Currently, I am most intrigued by the uses of the .NET framework and XML to create distributed, reusable applications.
