    I have been working as a Sofware Engineer since 2004. I have experience building distributed systems using RESTful design patterns as part of a service oriented architecture.

    While at Microsoft I shipped features in multiple versions of the Windows Operating System as part of the User Experience Group. I worked on features for the Live Tiles API in Windows 8 and Bing search integration in Windows 8.1. More recently at zulily I manage a team of software engineers building tools and automation solutions for the Vendor Operations team as well as supporting the Vendor Portal tools used by external vendors selling products on the zulily website.
