So, somehow within the past five years I’ve mapped out my life to lead to a point where I’m sitting here blogging on GeeksWithBlogs.net. I never would have guessed it…lol There’s no need for me to sweat it though. I’m a 23 year old IT college graduate that has a full time software development job, an amazing family, a loving girlfriend, and incredible friends.  As one of my co-workers recently put it: “I’m livin’ the dream” :)

I'm a former employee of iPay Technologies and currently work for Republic Bank.  The recent job hop was a pretty big deal for me but I had to take the job offer with Republic to further my career.  If I could combine the two jobs into one, I'd do it since both companies have been great places to work. As weird as it sounds, the biggest change I faced was going from working in a small town to working in the big city.  It's taken some time for me to adapt but new friends and new places to eat have made it a lot easier. I've gained a new appreciation for people that have to face the downtown traffic nightmare five days a week...lol

The main focus in my career is Microsoft Technology and .NET Development.  I've worked with tons of languages and various applications: C#, ASP.NET, Visual Basic 6.0, SQL, XML, AJAX, Javascript, Classic ASP, LINQ, Flash, jQuery, Java, Visual Studio Team System 2008, Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server Management Studio, WinMerge, Tortoise SVN, Visual SourceSafe, IIS, Firebug, IE Developer Toolbar, HttpWatch, Vice Versa Engine, Google Analytics, Google Web Optimizer, etc.

I'm currently diving into tons of Team Foundation Server experience. That's actually how I came across this blog site. I needed some help publishing a Click Once application using Team Build and Tim Hibbard's blog on this site gave me exactly what I needed.  So I thought to myself, I should look into starting a blog of my own up. Of course, that was the easy part.  Now I just have to find the time to post a few blogs out there...lol
