Product Evangelist, Strangeloop Networks


Richard, who has 30 years of high-tech experience, is a Microsoft Regional Director for British Columbia and is recognized as a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) in the area of ASP.NET development. An impressive list of North American organizations, including Barnes&, Dow Chemical, Johnson & Johnson Health Care Services, Reuters, Subaru/Isuzu and the U.S. Air Force, have benefited from Richard’s consulting expertise. Richard’s PWOP Productions creates a variety of multimedia programs including “.NET Rocks!, the Internet Audio Talk Show for .NET Developers,” a podcast produced twice a week for about 150,000 listeners. Richard has contributed nearly 300 Advisor columns to Microsoft Access Advisor, and is the author of courseware for AppDev’s national SQL Server 7.0 training seminars and video series. Since 1995, Richard has been a regular speaker on the technical-conference circuit—“I’ve spoken on every continent except Antarctica,” he says—and, in 2006, was ranked the top speaker at Tech Ed Asia in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The son of an electrical engineer, Richard was tinkering with microcomputers at age 10 and, by 16, had started his own business developing custom software.
