I have been writing software since I was a kid. My dad got me started with QBASIC, and I never stopped telling computers what to do since then.
In addition to being a software geek, I’m also a music geek. I’ve been playing classical piano since I was five, and studied music composition in college. I’m a firm believer that the thought processes involved with writing & performing music are very similar to the processes of designing & writing software.
I worked at Infragistics for a couple of years, and learned a lot about user interface programming from the masters at the WinForms Dev Lab in Long Island. When I saw WPF for the first time in late 2005, I knew that it was the future of UI development on Windows. I’ve been exploring WPF ever since, and love it more every day.
