I am a SharePoint Specialist for Sapient Government Services, based out of Arlington Virginia.
While my focus is everything SharePoint, my main focus is SharePoint development. I believe .net best practices, as well as SharePoint best practices, need to be adhered to when developing custom solutions for the SharePoint platform. Even though my title and focus is SharePoint, I still make sure I work on all the aspects of .net development (as developing is my favorite thing to do).
I am also heavily involved in the Washington, D.C. area SharePoint community. I present on different SharePoint topics ranging from development to design to governance.
