1. What is the coolest Microsoft 365 developer feature for you?

Can I say all of Azure’s big data tools, now that it’s so easy to analyze data with Microsoft Graph data connect? 

2. What school did you graduate from?

I was raised in North Dakota, and it was a no-brainer to go to North Dakota State University. Go Bison!

3. What’s your favorite city to live in?

I live east of Seattle’s eastside, past the Snoqualmie river valley. It’s very peaceful, and not that far from work! 

4. What did you want to be when you were a kid?

I still want to be an astronaut. 

5. Which words or phrases do you most over-use?

“I disagree.”

6. Which talent would you most like to have?

I play piano as a hobby, but I wish I had a lot more talent. 

7. Where would you most like to live?

The more time I spend in the Pacific Northwest, the more I enjoy our 9-month rainy season. 

8. What is your most treasured possession?

There are not a lot of things that I treasure, but my wedding ring is an exception.  

9. What is your most marked characteristic?

Sounding like I know what I’m talking about! 

10. Spaces or tabs?

I will die a tabs man.
