I am an enterprise software architect, developer and technical project manager. I am Microsoft certified (XAML technologies) and a 4-year Microsoft MVP. I leverage my sales and entrepreneurial experience, a passion for mentoring and public speaking, and a strong social media presence to stay current with the latest technology and help deliver high quality mission critical solutions.
I authored the books Building Windows 8 Apps with C# and XAML, Designing Silverlight Business Applications, co-authored Real World C#, .NET, and Silverlight, and presented the video series Fundamentals of the Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF). I was named Silverlight MVP of the Year in 2010 and received my fourth MVP award in June 2013.
Professionally I serve as Principal Consultant for Wintellect backed by 20 years of experience developing enterprise applications. I have worked with software in multiple vertical industries including insurance, health and wellness, supply chain management, and mobility. My primary focus for the past decade has been building highly scalable Web-based solutions using the Microsoft technology stack, most recently with a focus on Single Page Applications (SPA) using a stack including Entity Framework, MVC, Web API, AngularJS and TypeScript.
Prior to Wintellect, I was director of information technology and served as development manager and architect for AirWatch, LLC, where I helped the company grow and solidify its position as one of the leading wireless technology solution providers in the United States by managing the development of their product portfolio, which includes public HotSpot solutions and a management console for enterprise grade wireless networks, mobile devices, and their consumers.
A fluent Spanish speaker, I served as director of information technology for Hispanicare, where I architected a multilingual content management system for the company's Hispanic-focused online diet program.
I accepted my role there after serving as development manager for Manhattan Associates, a software company that provides supply chain management solutions.
