I have been at Microsoft Corp since Nov 1997 and have been with several groups within Microsoft such as the Development Division, Windows CE and now with Redmond Research.
My primary duties with the Advanced Development team is to Test Projects by Microsoft Researchers. I also perform several duties such as; Team Lab, Source File Control, SQL Development and Administration, Test Sharepoint and Test Tools Development using C#.
I work really close with both internal and external teams within Microsoft and sometimes with external Microsoft customers using our technology. I believe in providing the best experience to any Microsoft customer and treat them how I would like to be treated as a customer.
Currently, I am leading my own research test project "Microsoft Research Automation Tool" (MSRat). The idea behind this tool, is to allow testers to record mouse, keyboard and touch inputs on Windows 8 Modern UI applications. The tool will then generate the C# code necessary for the test to be executed at any time, either by itself or as part of a suite.
Some of the projects that I have worked and personal interests are outlined below.
|SQL Server 7.0, 2000, 2005, 2008||Microsoft Voice Command|
|PII Web Certification||Windows CE for Automotive and Windows Mobile|
|Visual Studio 2005/2008||NewsToMe|
|Microsoft Tag||Ford Sync|
|SenseWeb||MSR Voice Search Client|
|AjaxView||PHD and Intern Hiring|
|Kinect SDK for the PC||Codebook|
|Software Automation||Artificial Intelligence & Speech Recognition|
|Computer Learning||Web Technology|
|Tools Development||Internet Security and Cyber Crime prevention|
I use SQL Server, Visual Studio, and many other programming tools on a daily basis and conduct internal training to other staff members a few times a year.
Outside of work, my main interest is Aviation. I am currently an FAA Certified Flight Instructor and Sport Pilot. I fly two types of aircraft; A powered parachute and a single engine fixed wing light sport aircraft. Both of the above aircrafts are considered what is it called SLSA (Special Light Sport Aircraft).
