In my 15-year career, I have been involved in most aspects of developing, productizing and supporting software. I started out on the very technical side of I.T. development, writing C software for a machine vision company. I since have successfully crossed the technology chasm as a requirements engineer and later principal product manager for EMC.
Direct contact with customers and end users have made me keenly aware of the importance of balance between the business and the I.T. development side of things.
I grew up in Europe but now enjoy living close to the Rocky Mountains with my wife and three kids. I like to grew vegetables in my back yard and brew my own beer and wine; in winter you can find me in Jasper on the Marmot basin ski hill.
