Tommy is a technical evangelist at Microsoft who at 8-years-old thought that there was a frog apocalypse happening in his backyard. It turned out that it was just the rain making all the frogs come out and do the frog dance. He has been at Microsoft for over 15 years since and has evangelized everything from Visual Basic 6 to HTML5 to Design for web developers and designers world-wide; he even once ate a ‘century egg’ while in China. Tommy is also very much an advocate of technology coexistence and thinks technologists must look past dogma so that we can create a better future. When not talking about the rad-ness of HTML5, design and Microsoft tech, he enjoys his family (the Tenderoni, the pup & cats), tacos, and all things 80’s.
