I started with Sheridan Software in 1997 in the developer support department. I moved into managing the support and later the QA department. Around the time when Sheridan merged with Protoview, I decided that a management role didn't allow me enough time to code so I transferred to R&D. Aside from some ActiveX development and maintenance I got to work with the first betas of .NET developing some of our Windows Forms components. Over the following years I developed a number of controls/components and also architected our WinForms Application Styling Framework. Since late 2006, I've been working almost exclusively on WPF development.
