I am a Principal Consultant at Improving Houston. I’ve been developing software for 25+ years (FoxPro, .NET, Ruby on Rails).
Previously, I’ve worked for several years developing .NET applications, presented several lectures at Microsoft events such as PDC Brazil, TechEd Europe, and various other Microsoft seminars, as well as several conferences and user groups across North America, Europe and Brazil.
I’ve earned the the Microsoft MVP Award from 2001 through 2012 (for Visual FoxPro in 2001-2002, and then for C#). I’ have articles published in several magazines, such as MSDN Brazil Magazine and CoDe Magazine.
I’ve started the Virtual Brown Bag meetings in 2009.
When not building software, I’m probably working on my music, riding my motorcycle at the track, or hanging out with my family (not necessarily in that order).
