Coder - Speaker - Microsoft MVP - Scuba Instructor

I’m a geek and I love sharing about the technologies that excite me. I do this through speaking at conferences, user groups, and other local events, organizing the Kansas City .NET User Group, providing technical training, writing on my blog, and sometimes on other outlets like Twitter, Github, Instagram, and YouTube.
