I'm the Director of Software Development for The Advisory Board - Ann Arbor.  I was a software developer for 15 years when in 2010 I took the leap into full time management.  As a novice technical manager, I've been working hard to educate myself in the many areas of management.  Management, once a thing that other people did, has now become a passion.   As I once did with C++, COM, Design Patterns, EJBs and Spring, I'm slowly finding my way on the road to one day becoming a technical management guru.
