Intel Developer Zone Community Team Manager and developer relations evangelist. My first PC was a Commodore Vic20. With the upgrade pack I was writing 8K programs stored on a cassette tape drive. I did a lot of fun graphic applications writing code that drew cubes and animated them on the screen. I started my professional career in marketing & graphic design, then made the transition to IT work in the late 90's. After 2 brief years as a VP bigshot for two dot coms, I started my own company in 2001 doing web applications and design. (lots of Photoshop, & ColdFusion, and Sculpt4D work). I eventually landed at Intel in Corporate Marketing managing intel.com's social media strategy. I am now happy to be back on the software side of things supporting AppUp and the AppUp Developer ProgramOutside of work, if I'm not online, gaming, or watching LOST reruns on my DVR I probably have a sketch pad in my hand and am doodling a cartoon.
