Microsofts BotFramework, Decision, Vision, Speech, Search and Language APIs driven by AI and Machine Learning.


Over 10 years experience in the IT industry...

... I have worked with a wide variety of clients from different industries as is the nature of the work that I do. I am a big believer in futurology and I think that the landscape of consumable AI and Machine learning services is going to lead to some ground-breaking industry changes in the near future. I fall under the term full-stack developer, but I personally subscribe to the T shaped model which comes from the idea that an individual can possess deep skills in a few areas as well as a broader range of shallower skills. I have been fortunate to work with some really interesting industries and business which has helped me broaden areas of certain tech stacks.
