About DSF

I am a director at Perficient in the Microsoft Customer Experience practice, specializing in Sitecore Solutions, and awarded the Sitecore Technology MVP in 2019.

Previously I was the Northeast regional Digital Marketing Lead at Avanade, a joint venture between Accenture and Microsoft. I've been a software developer since 1999 and have been a consultant since 2005.

Most of my career has been focused on web development, but I have done quite a bit of BizTalk, SharePoint and more recently Sitecore development. I have written articles for MSDN Magazine and the Microsoft Architecture Journal and spoken at user groups, code camps at Sitecore Symposium.

I have had my share of side projects. Snip-It Pro was my attempt at selling a desktop app for managing code snippets. It’s no longer sold, but still works and is now free. I joined the Founder’s institute for a little while and built a social wedding site called Wedding Crowd which never got traction and no longer available.

I tried my hand at open source, building mtelligent, a AB Testing Framework for ASP.Net. I spent a long time at Avanade working on a Sitecore Development acceleator, which was open sourced as Sitecore Foundation in 2017. More recently, I’ve been pulling it apart into smaller feature projects like Handlebars for Sitecore.
