Senior Product Manager, Engineered 4 Developers (E4D)

I'm a product manager at Microsoft working on the Windows Package Manager. I've worked at a few other companies you might have heard of like Amazon, Verizon and VMWare, and a few you might not have heard of like FlashNet and Unbound Technologies. I love building products and digging into useless trivia.
