I started writing C# back in 2005 as a hobby. It did not enter my career path until I had moved to Seattle were the jobs I have had, made it more of a needed skill. I started developing websites in ASP.NET MVC and making it the language of choice. My natural abilities just took over from there. I am now considered by those who know me as a leader in C# development and patterns. I have not forgotten my origins though and still dabble in the PHP around the house.
