Started in the 80's with COBOL mainframe programming for a big bank.
Spent the 90's consulting with the big boys (Accenture) and a dot com bomb. Did lots of Technical Architecture recommendations in my time. Did CORBA when it was cool, Java when it was new, and Microsoft before it was popular.
I spend my time now as the Systems Architecture Manager for a captive automotive finance company. I still keep my hands dirty.
I've also started a side concern developing software to help bridge the gap between TFS and the real world.
