Yesterday I had tweeted about some awesome news, but then I failed to actually follow up. Sorry about that.
The news is: I’ve been promoted to a Senior Software Engineer. After just a year at Skyline Technologies, I’ve been able to get stuff done, make an impression, and move on up.
Thank you to my manager and director for vouching for me to the leadership team; it’s amazing to work on such a great team and to be recognized for my contributions. And of course thanks to the leadership team for agreeing with them and giving the thumbs up! And probably the biggest thank you goes to my coworkers, peers, and clients that all gave me stellar reviews (that made for excellent justification material). Blessed, I am.
So far it’s been an awesome year at Skyline, and I’m looking forward to many more. On to the future! Continue reading…

After 30 to 45 minutes of waiting on a few Vimeo files to “process”, I finally decided to upgrade to a Pro account. I’ve been doing some more screencasting, and would like to continue creating more videos. I’m happy to announce that my first channel is live: Photography and Post-Processing.
I hope to capture some more screencasts than just on this channel, including some tech screens. If anyone has any suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments.
Usually when I post a recipe it’s my own creation derived and inspired from several other recipes or family secrets. This time, however, I just want to share an excellent hummus recipe that I found. Continue reading…
Yesterday I was on the MS Dev Show discussing Azure Mobile Services. We discussed what AMS is, why you would want to use it, and in general, the amazing amount of functionality it provides to developers expanding their mobile presence.
Check out the episode here: Azure Mobile Services with Brandon Martinez.
Last summer I started biking as my exercise of choice. I purchased a Trek Verve 2 from the local bike shop, along with all the basics (helmet, travel bags, etc), and set out to ride over 600 miles last summer.
Using MapMyRide I was able to track all of my biking progress. However, I didn’t have a good way to see my progress during the ride; I would just start the workout, tuck my phone into the bike pouch, and be on my way. Well, I finally found the solution to that problem: the HandleBand.
