Ok, I was tagged by Jim Minatel and I have to list five things about myself that you might not be aware of.

#1 – I work for Lipper, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Reuters. I just moved to Lipper as their Technical Architect after about 5 years at Reuters. I am leading the effort to design and build their next-generation platform and premium product offering (all .NET of course)!

#2 – I am married to an outstanding lady I met in Europe. She's from Finland and we have three kids aged 8, 6, and 1 together. Everyone in my family has dual-citizenship EXCEPT me!

#3 – I am an air-cooled Volkswagen fanatic and have owned in my past a '68 Karmann Ghia (my first car), '64 ½ (really) Volkswagen Camper Bus (built the engine myself), '62 Bug, and a '72 Fastback (kinda rare).

#4 – I have a Russian linguistics major and journalism minor and I enjoyed a front row seat in the Russian Revolution of 1993.

#5 – I am one of the rare folks that grew up and spent most of my life in the Seattle area and has since left for some sunshine! And No, I have never worked for Microsoft (the most asked question of me).
