I first started working in custom software as a programmer in 1997.  According to Stack Overflow I’m in the top 7.5% in experience level, for what that’s worth.  It’s because of the huge influx of developers into the market (and that isn’t stopping any time soon).

I serve as the Chief Architect of Clear Measure, Inc., a software architecture company that empowers development teams to be self-sufficient: moving fast, delivering quality, and running their systems with confidence. Many of my teachings can be found on Clear Measure’s Empower website.

.NET DevOps for Azure is my latest publication and has been deemed #1 on Book Authority’s top 10 reads for 2020. Along with a few editions of ASP.NET MVC in Action in print and on Safari Online, I’ve also written for CoDe Magazine, spoken at Microsoft Tech Ed, Ignite, VSLive, and am the perpetrator of the Onion Architecture pattern.

I also love conversations that involve: Jesus, motorcycles (KTM), Boy Scouts, military deployments, Texas A&M, and camping.
