Employment History

Microsoft Corporation, Principal PM Manager, Microsoft Edge
Since June 2014, I have been working on making the web more interoperable and fast for Microsoft Edge, a new browser built for Windows 10 with modern web interoperability, industry leading performance, and innovative user experiences in mind.

I run the Media, Communications, Networking, and Enterprise teams for the Microsoft Edge web platform. I’m currently working on improving web real-time communications through WebRTC and ORTC, better offline support and push notifications through ServiceWorker, faster and more secure networking, biometric authentication through Windows Hello and Web Authentication, new media features, enterprise scenarios for Microsoft Edge, and other areas.

In the past, I have also worked on helping design our HTML platform infrastructure, including bringing up a new browser engine and building on top of the Windows Universal Platform so Microsoft Edge can run on Windows, Windows Phone, Xbox, HoloLens, SurfaceHub.

Microsoft Corporation, Senior Lead Program Manager, Internet Explorer
From February 2008 through May 2014, I focused on modernizing the Internet Explorer web platform and helped ship IE8, IE9, IE10, and IE11.

I worked on performance and web graphics, helping rebuild the browser from the ground up for HTML5, hardware accelerating the graphics stack, compiling JavaScript to native machine code, and implementing the latest web standards, like Canvas 2D context. I also participated in many W3C standards body working groups, including as a co-editor of the Canvas 2D Context specification in the HTML working group, editor of the Page Visibility, High Resolution Time, Beacon, Navigation Timing, Resource Timing, User Timing, setImmediate, and other specifications in the Web Performance working group that brought better CPU and power efficient APIs to the web.

I also ran the Enterprise team and developed the Enterprise Mode set of features to help Enterprise customers more easily upgrade to the latest version of the browser while keeping their existing line of business applications working.

Intel Corporation, Hardware Engineer, Flash Memory
In 2006, I was a Hardware Engineer at Intel focused on measuring and making flash memory faster.

Research In Motion, Software Developer, Location Based Services
In 2005, I was a Software Developer working on the Blackberry Maps applications. As a part of my role, I designed efficient mapping algorithms, as well as the visual look and feel for the map application, patterns that are now ubiquitous in modern mapping applications. Developing small and efficient code under cell phone hardware constraints has always been a pleasure.

Education

Simon Fraser University, Engineering Science, B.ASc. Honours
I hold a Bachelor of Applied Sciences degree in Computer Engineering.
