I began my professional career as C# Windows Forms developer with SQL Server data stores. My strength is in programming in the .NET Framework, so WinForms, Silverlight, WPF, and web services are my native tongue. I have less practical experience in Silverlight and WPF-- if a project demanded it, I could do it.
I am a very experienced consumer of SQL Server. I understand normalization and relational data modeling (as it differs to other data models like object-oriented or Lucene) and I can write good, performant queries that meet DBA expectations.
