Jeff Brand - Professional Profile



I've been with Microsoft for over 10 years now. I started with the company soon after the release of Windows 95. Now those were heady days. I've seen the long march of Windows 2000 and was right there for the browser wars. While at Microsoft, I have been a consultant, an ecommerce specialist, and an enterprise technology advisor. Prior to Microsoft, I was in the Air Force stationed at Offutt AFB in Omaha, NE where I was Chief Network Engineer (my pre-developer days) for the USSTRATCOM LAN.
Today, I am a .NET Developer Evangelist for Microsoft's North Central District. I live in Minneapolis and often travel to the surrounding states of Nebraska, Iowa, and the Dakotas (ok, not so much the Dakotas). In my current role, I am responsible for working with developers and customers that are evaluating or using .NET, especially Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.
My hobbies and interests include: football, basketball, golf, poker, reading, painting miniatures, and Michigan State sports!
